AQ Podcast: What Does 2023 Hold for Latin American Economies?

An examination of trends for 2023 from the head of Latin America research at Goldman Sachs
Reading Time: < 1 minute

In this episode, Brian Winter and Alberto Ramos, head of Latin America economic research at Goldman Sachs, assess the state of the region’s economies as we head into 2023. Why were numbers for 2022 better than expected, and why didn’t it feel that way for many? What should governments do to avoid headwinds in 2023? How might external factors, such as the war in Ukraine, economic activity in China and U.S. interest rates impact Latin American finances? Hear Ramos’ expectations for Latin America as a whole and specific analysis on Brazil, Colombia, Argentina, Peru and Chile.
