The objective of this book is to present the results of the ?Fiscal Space for Growth in the Mercosur? project which was carried out by three research institutions belonging to MercoNet (CEDES, CINVE, and UFRJ). The main objective of the studies undertaken as part of the project was to evaluate the fiscal space for growth in Argentina, Brazil, and Uruguay from a regional and comparative perspective. In line with this objective, a large part of the effort was centered on studying the important changes to the fiscal plan that the Mercosur countries produced in this decade.

The research gathered in this book ? carried out by three MercoNet institutions ? focuses on growth, competitivity, and integration in Mercosur. This research is based on three ideas which are central in modern literature in the field. The first is that exports have a central role in making productivity dynamic; the second is that geography matters in so much as it can help the discovery of new activities to take advantage of growing economies of scale within the region; the third is that growth follows a path, which far from being linear, is a process of structural change that shows breaking points (acceleration and collapse). With this view, it is important to identify the factors that could accelerate the growth or avoid collapse that are typical of the region?s countries when designing policies to improve international productivity and competitivity. In order to identify these factors, growth diagnosis were carried out of the two largest Mercosur economies and of Uruguay, adopting a regional and comparative perspective and emphasizing the process of discovery in new export activities and in the role of foreign direct investment and the national innovation system

The aim of this book is to advance the study of macroeconomic policy in Mercosur and analyze the obstacles and limitations that macroeconomic coordination within the bloc will certainly face. In light of the strengthening of trade relations between members since the Asuncion Treaty was signed in 1991, the topic is indisputably relevant. The situation of immense instability brought on at the end of the last decade and during the beginning of this one has shown how fragile integration is without policy coordination
