LACEA has established itself as the leading association of economists interested in the problems of economic and social development in Latin America and the Caribbean. We have contributed to strengthening ties between the research community and economic decision makers in the region and we have fostered debate and dissemination of better economic and social policies based on economic research. Yet, during the last few years, we struggled to find a permanent sponsor, who would help us maintain these activities. Therefore, we kindly ask you to help us make LACEA financially sustainable for the years to come. Please take one minute to donate. Every contribution counts. Thank you!
