Dissecting Economic Growth in Uruguay

Uruguay experienced one of its biggest economic booms in history during 2004-2014. Since then, growth has come down signficantly. This project investigates the various causes of the boom, and discusses the sustainablity of these causes. It then pit Uruguay against high-growth countries that were once at a similar income level, across a broad set of structural indicators, to uncover priority reform areas that could improve long-term growth sustainability.
