  • 24. IV. Conclusions
  • 25. Conclusions Analytical: The pockets of growth approach allows us to control for structural constraints common to all export products. While “everything matters” at the aggregate level, specific institutional binding constraints matter the most for price-specific and quality specific industries. This allows us to “unpack” the weight of specific institutional determinants of growth and poverty reduction (pending).
  • 26. Conclusions Policy: If “pockets of growth” emerge in low growth, low-investment and low-productivity economies, than policies that attack specific binding constraints allow a certain degree of “leap-frogging” convergence constraints. Bolivia should pursue a “three-gear” policy strategy for commodities, price-sensitive industry and quality sensitive industry that discriminates between “basics” and “tailored” policy impact (pending).
