Central Banking, Analysis, and Economic Policies

The Central Banking, Analysis and Economic Policies Series of the Central Bank of Chile publishes works on central banking and general economics, with emphasis on subjects and policies related to economic conduct in developing countries.

The volumes already included in the series have been selected because of the excellence of the research accomplished, its usefulness for policy making and its relevance to Chile and other countries. Most of the selected research has been conducted or supported by the Central Bank of Chile.

The manuscripts of proposed books for publication are subject to an accurate process of revision carried out by external referees, but the final approval corresponds to the editorial committee and to the Board of the Central Bank.

The books are both published in hard bound printed copies and may be also found in the website of the Bank.
