Grappling with new global finance: Chile’s experience

Grappling with new global finance: Chile’s experience

Lecture from Rodrigo Vergara, Governor of the Central Bank of Chile

Globalized finance poses major challenges for emerging economies. GEG’s Annual Lecture provides an exciting chance to hear from one of Latin America’s leading policy makers. Governor Vergara will share his experiences and insights on the most pressing opportunities and challenges facing emerging economies, particularly in Latin America. How can Latin American countries foster financial stability and economic growth in this new era of global finance? What are the most and least effective policy responses? What can we learn from Chile’s experience?

He was previously a Professor at the Economics Department of Universidad Católica de Chile, coordinator of the Macroeconomics Department at an independent think tank, the Center for Public Studies, and Chief Economist at the Central Bank of Chile.

Rodrigo Vergara has provided expertise as an economic advisor to the central banks and governments of several countries in Latin America, Eastern Europe, Asia and Africa, as well as acting as a consultant for the World Bank, IMF, the Inter-American Development Bank and the UN.
