Latin America and the Caribbean is one of the most unequal regions in the world. Not only is this inequality high, but it is even excessive for the level of development of the region, indicating a kind of Latin American exceptionalism. Moreover, inequality in the region is not new, with its origins dating back to colonial times. Despite the many advances achieved in different economic and social development indicators in recent decades, average inequality levels in the region have not changed substantially or sustainably. Beyond countryspecific nuances, they continue to be a characteristic feature of Latin American and Caribbean societies. The Report on Economic Development 2022 (RED 2022) states that the high inequality in the region has very deep roots, driving its persistence over time. As a result of this inertia, who the most and least wealthy or advantaged individuals and families are has persisted steadily over time. RED 2022 documents and explains the evolution of intergenerational mobility in the region, assessing the multiple dimensions that determine the levels of wellbeing of parents and children.
The study focuses on the Central American countries comprising of- Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, and Dominican Republic which together constitute the Central America Integration System (SICA). The GDP of Central American countries which stood at US$ 35.3 billion in 1980 has grown more than twelve folds to reach US$ 428.4 billion in 2022. Based on the GDP size, Dominican Republic, followed by Guatemala and Panama are the largest economies of the region. The global economic disruptions caused by of the pandemic severely affected the region. The countries in the region, however, immediately responded to the crisis by implementing a host of measures in response to the pandemic, including lockdowns and curfews, additional funding and equipment for public health services, direct payments to individuals and families, and stimulus packages for small and medium-sized businesses, all with varying degrees of success. In 2021-22, the economies witnessed a strong rebound as the impact of the pandemic reduced, and vaccination around the world aided gradual reopening of economies.
