Noticias desde la Red Sudamericana de Economía Aplicada/  Red Sur

The Maastricht Economic and Social Research and Training Centre on Innovation and Technology (UNU-MERIT, United Nations University), the Inter-American Development Bank, the CINVE (Centro de Investigaciones Económicas, Uruguay), the Facultad de Ciencias Económicas y Administración, Universidad de la República and the Facultad de Administración y Ciencias Sociales, Universidad ORT Uruguay, announce that the 10th Conference on Micro Evidence on Innovation and DEvelopment (MEIDE) will be held on November 16-17, 2017 in Montevideo, Uruguay. The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers from around the world to discuss various aspects of innovation and its relation to economic development. Priority will be given to empirical papers, but there is also room for methodological and theoretical papers, as well as for case studies, as long as they address the issue of innovation and development. Innovation is to be understood broadly as any kind of innovation in what firms, households, communities and governments do, or in the way they operate. It also includes knowledge creation, diffusion, measurement and evaluation issues. Development comprises growth but also welfare, poverty alleviation, environmental concerns and fairness in the distribution of wealth/income. Since last year, we have enlarged the scope of the conference to include papers based on macro or industry data. This year a few sessions will be devoted to the theme “Obstacles to Innovation” in collaboration with a project lead by the Inter-American Development Bank and implemented with Red Sur. Examples of topics that could be covered: Innovation, productivity and firm performance Innovation, education, health, human capital, and social capital Innovation in universities and public...

Middle Powers Can Lead in Trump Era. How countries like Argentina and Canada can serve as global trade leaders amid clash of great powers Autores: OONAGH FITZGERALD HECTOR TORRES El triunfo electoral de Donald Trump basado en la premisa “Making America Great Again” representa un conjunto de desafíos al sistema del comercio internacional basado en la cooperación y las normas. Sin embargo, esos desafíos también configuran nuevas oportunidades para aquellos países que desean asumir un rol como defensores y promotores del imperio de la ley a nivel global. En ese contexto, los líderes de dos potencias medianas tendrán una oportunidad única en el año 2018 para dar forma a la agenda económica internacional: el presidente de Argentina Mauricio Macri quien, en el contexto del G20, recibirá a los líderes mundiales en Buenos Aires; y el Primer Ministro de Canadá Justin Trudeau, quien recibirá a los líderes del G7.
