Abstract

The characteristfcs of recent capital inflows into Latin America are discussed. It is argued that these inflows are partly explained by conditions outside the region, like recession in the United States and lower international interest rates. This suggests the possibility that a reversal of those conditions may lead to a future capital outflow, fncreasing the macroeconomic vulnerability of Latin American economies. Policy options are argued to be lfmited.
