Should Latin American countries adopt the same regulatory and supervisory procedures and market structures as industrial countries? Or should they consider alternative financial frameworks better suited to their very different economies? Policymakers, academics, and market practicioners exchange views on the current economic situation, appropriate financial regulatory and supervisory standards, financial market institution designs, and efficient safety nets for banks and other financial institutions. The Spanish version of this book is entitled "Sistemas financieros sólidos y seguros."
