Latin America: the key themes that will shape the region’s outlook in 2022

Topic: As the easy gains from the reopening fade and policy support is quickly withdrawn, Latin America is headed towards its old equilibrium of low trend growth in 2022. Please join our Chief LatAm Economist, Marcos Casarin, as he discusses the challenges around a possible disorderly withdrawal of stimulus and the risks of social unrest and institutional deterioration in the region. A special focus will be given to the inflation outlook and the implications to monetary policy.
