  • Alphacast Highlight - Peru: Activity contracts 1.3% in March

    chart

    Want to connect inflation data to Excel? Click here. Peru monthly GDP estimate, produced by INEI, showed a 1.3 % contraction during March. It is the second contraction in a row (-0.3% in February), indicating that the Peruvian economy is showing signs of stagnation due to the worsening condition on the external sector, in the sense of the Ukranian War and the China economic slowdown, and the higher inflation. Trade contracted 13.7% in March, Fishing, 3.7 % and Oil and Gas Extraction and Mining contracted 2.29 %. Construction and Manufacture grew 4.51% and 0.79 % respectively. Despite the recent slowdown, Peru is one of the countries that registered the highest rates of growth in the last decade (30 %), falling behind only to Colombia. However most of this growth happened before the pandemic. During the pandemic, Peru registered the largest drop of the region and since it's recovery it has been struggling to return to its pre-pandemic growth trend.

  • How to use Alphacast's DSA Tool

    chart

    This is a quick, step by step, guide on how to implement a DSA using Alphacast's pipelines. First, you need to open the pipeline tool. Select the repository you want the pipeline to be in and give a name to your pipeline. After that just click on "Create". Then, you have to select your input dataset. This dataset must contain the historical annual data for the following variables: real GDP growth, the variation of the GDP deflator, the Debt/GDP ratio, the exchange rate devaluation of the exchange rate between the local currency and the US Dollar, the implicit interest rate of the domestic Public Debt, the implicit interest rate of the foreign Public Debt and the ratio of the foreign Public Debt and the total Public Debt. If you are interested in analyzing LAC countries, you can use the same dataset used in our example. Check its contents here. Just type the dataset, select it, and save the first step. On the next step, you need to select the option "Debt Sustainability Analysis". After selecting the country you want to analyze (this will be based on your dataset), you must define the baseline forecasts. This can be based on your...

  • Alphacast Debt Sustainability Analysis Tool

    chart

    Contents: - Introducing a new tool for economic analysis - Example 1: Brazil's debt looks sustainable - Example 2: Peru in need of fiscal adjustment - Methodological appendix Introducing a new tool for economic analysis Alphacast has integrated into it's platform a Debt Sustainability Analysis (DSA) Tool. Basically, this tool can help you forecast the Debt/GDP ratio of a country, taking into account specific characteristics such as growth, inflation, interest rates on domestic and foreign debt, exchange rate depreciation and primary surplus. The tool also applies shocks to generate a fan-chart style chart so it can account for uncertainty into the forecasts (see the Appendix for more information). It will take literally less than a minute to generate charts just like this one below. Click here for a detailed explanation on how to use our new tool. Read below some examples to illustrate how to use this tool to produce your own analysis. Example 1: Brazil's debt looks sustainable Over the past few years, Brazil has registered consecutive primary deficits and low growth rates. Recently, the government tried to reduce its primary deficit, so they could put public debt on a sustainable path again. Interesting to note, Brazil has a...
