This panel will discuss how research is using micro data from firms to understand macroeconomic phenomena and the design of public policy. Marcela Eslava, Roberto Fattal Jaef, and Federico Huneeus, three leading experts in the area, will provide examples on how firm data can shed light on issues such as: growth, inequality, market structure, misallocation of capital, production networks, and productivity. The presentations will show data from Latin America. Jose de Gregorio will lead the discussion after the initial presentations, taking questions from the audience.
