Falling global commodity prices and the normalization of monetary policy in the United States have contributed to widespread currency depreciations in Latin America. In theory, a falling currency is expected to create inflation by driving up the price of imported goods and services—triggering what economists call exchange rate pass-through.

The International Monetary Fund today launched its Spanish-language blog for Latin America, Diálogo a Fondo.
The blog will focus on international issues and economic topics related to Latina America. The first post is by Nicolás Eyzaguirre, head of the IMF’s Western Hemisphere Department, on the outlook for Mexico. He writes that Mexico’s strong economic institutions helped the country get through the global economic crisis and its economy is now recovering well.
The new Spanish-language blog complements the IMF’s English-language blog, iMFdirect—the Fund’s global economy forum.
