  • How can I create a basic dashboard?

    Here you will find some examples that will be useful when building your own dashboard Saving charts on your clipboard Before you start creating your first dashboard, it's useful you preselect the charts that you want to work with using the clipboard. The clipboard allows you to have all the charts you want to add at hand. Access it via the hook button at the top right of the screen For that, you will have to click on the clip chart button below each graphic and voila, it is already saved in the clipboard. Dashboard --> clipping charts In case you want to use charts from another dashboard, don't forget to make the chart interactive so you can clip it. Dashboard --> Switching to Interactive Starting point To create and publish a dashboard, find and click the button in the upper right of the site "Create New" and select "Insight". The window on the left is the editor. There you can add a title, subtitles, and all the charts you want to visualize on your dashboard. The window on the right shows a previsualization of the left side. Follow the instructions already written to help you in the process but...

  • Econviews Macro Monitor - December

    chart

    www.econviews.com On the wait for the agreement with the IMF Next week the Minister of Economy will present to the National Congress his "multi-year plan", with the axis of the economic policy for the coming years, in the framework of an agreement with the IMF - which the authorities have been saying for a while that it is "almost closed". But beyond the much-needed economic roadmap for the medium term, the short-term situation is pressing. The Central Bank has few reserves and the undervalued FX rate of recent months worsens the situation: an explosive cocktail for devaluation expectations. Will the summer of 2014 be repeated, or could the government reach the months of liquidation of the gross harvest without a discrete jump in the FX rate? The FX situation and a hot summer Net reserves are at critical levels. When the exchange rate jumped 23% monthly in January 2014, net reserves were at an estimated USD 19 bn. Nowadays the situation is more delicate: the Central Bank has just over USD 6 bn of net reserves. The strategy of using the exchange rate as an anchor against inflation did not yield the desired results and the average monthly inflation since...

  • Crowding Out | CEA Perspectives

    chart

    By Centro de Economia Aplicada Perspectives' column for October 2021. This section of the Center for Applied Economics (CEA) of UCEMA offers an analysis of prominent economists, with different orientations about economic problems of our country and the world. The plan to pay off the debt is to grow. The plan to reduce the fiscal deficit is to grow. The plan to lower inflation is to grow. The plan to reduce poverty is to grow. It seems that the solution to everything is economic growth. Unfortunately, we do not grow. The causes of the economic stagnation (to be generous) that has trapped us since 2011 are undoubtedly many, but today I want to focus on one: the lack of credit to the productive private sector. To grow you have to invest. If an entrepreneur wants to invest, he has two paths: he can use his own funds or he can resort to the capital market and obtain funds from third parties. The Argentine capital market is non-existent. According to the World Bank, the market capitalization of all publicly listed companies in Argentina is equivalent to 8.8% of GDP. In Brazil, the market capitalization is equivalent to 68.4% of GDP, in...

    By Centro de Economía Aplicada Columna Perspectivas del mes de octubre 2021. Esta sección del Centro de Economía Aplicada (CEA) de la UCEMA provee un análisis de destacados economistas con orientaciones y enfoques diferentes respecto de los problemas económicos de nuestro país y el mundo El plan para pagar la deuda es crecer. El plan para reducir el déficit fiscal es crecer. El plan para bajar la inflación es crecer. El plan para reducir de la pobreza es crecer. Parece ser que la solución para todo es el crecimiento económico. Lamentablemente no crecemos. Las causas del estancamiento económico (para ser generosos) que nos tiene atrapados desde 2011 sin dudas son muchas, pero hoy me quiero concentrar en una: la falta de crédito al sector privado productivo. Para crecer hay que invertir. Si un emprendedor quiere invertir tiene dos caminos, puede utilizar fondos propios o puede recurrir al mercado de capitales y conseguir fondos de terceros. El mercado de capitales argentino es inexistente. De acuerdo con el Banco Mundial, la capitalización de mercado de todas las empresas que cotizan públicamente en Argentina equivale a 8,8% del PBI. En Brasil la capitalización bursátil equivale a 68,4% del PBI, en Chile es 73%,...

  • Activity in Latin America during the Covid-19 shock

    chart

    The pandemic outbreak and the subsequent domestic policy response deeply affected LAC economies. Activity dropped between -11% (Peru) and 0.4% (Paraguay) in 2020, though intra-year dynamics were slightly heterogeneous. For some (notably, Ecuador, Peru and Argentina), the downfall was "fast and furious", concentrating in 2021's early months. For others, the recession was milder and more distributed along the year. The deeper the fall, the faster the recovery. Unsurprisingly, the speed of economic recovery was also different between countries. Those which suffered most and earlier recovered stronger and faster than others. Activity in Latin America was trying to recover when the "second wave" hit our shores. Regardless of specific dynamics, most LAC economies where close to pre-pandemic levels (some above -Ecuador- and others below -Argentina-) by end-Q1. With the renewed pandemic outbreak, early data shows that activity has suffered another setback. The extent of the economic damage will depend, of course, on the severity of the contagion and the associated policy response. After last year's experience, most governments seem reluctant to implement harsh nation-wide...

  • Latin America EMBI: Argentina's uptrend

    chart

    In response to the uncertainty brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, Latin America's economies showed an increase in their sovereign spread, with Argentina having the second-highest rate (4,361 bps, lower than Venezuela's 3,500 bps). As the year went through and the pandemic's first wave winded down, LAC's risk premia moved downward and, eventually, stabilized. Argentina did not share the same luck as its neighbors. Although its country risk dropped after the debt exchange (September 2020), since then it has moved upwards, reaching 1,505 bps by early June. Investors seem very wary about the creditworthiness of Argentina's national government: for them, (another) sovereign default seems likely to...

  • IMF - World Economic Outlook

    chart

    The International Monetary Fund (IMF) publishes data on world economic developments. Latin America was hard hit by Covid-19 last year, and the South Cone (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, and Uruguay) was no different. However, not every economy suffered alike. Argentina's GDP dropped the most in 2020 (-10%) and the IMF forecasts that after a relatively better performance in 2021 (+5.8%), its growth rate will lag behind that of its neighbors (+2.5% in 2022 and a deceleration to +1.5% by...
