520    Interest in learning how to make the most of the potential
       developmental benefits of remittance flows has grown 
       worldwide. Financing the Family adds to that body of 
       knowledge with a summary of recent research that 
       emphasizes experimental approaches, focuses on Central 
       America, and analyzes the impact of the recent financial 
       crisis.|bInterest in learning how to make the most of the 
       potential developmental benefits of remittance flows has 
       grown worldwide, but few attempts have been made to 
       summarize existing knowledge in a way that is easy to 
       digest. Financing the Family adds to that body of 
       knowledge with a summary of recent research that 
       emphasizes experimental approaches, focuses on Central 
       America, and analyzes the impact of the recent financial 
       crisis. It finds that while remittances generate many 
       benefits for both migrants and their families back home, 
       the long-term effects of migration on social cohesion and 
       child welfare demands further study. The book also 
       explores how to enhance the development impact of 
       remittances through innovative financial instruments that 
       give migrants greater control over the money they send 
       home. Finally, the book exposes the vulnerability of 
       Central American countries to a weaker U.S. economy. It 
       demonstrates how focusing on the sectors and states where 
       migrants are concentrated can allow for better policy 
       responses in the face of economic downturns.

       1959 to support the process of economic and social 
       development in Latin America and the Caribbean, is the 
       main source of multilateral financing in the region. The 
       IDB Group provides solutions to development challenges by 
       partnering with governments, companies and civil society 
       organizations, thus reaching its clients ranging from 
       central governments to city authorities and businesses. It
       also offers research, advice and technical assistance to 
       support key areas including education, poverty reduction 
       and agriculture as well as cross-border issues such as 
       trade, infrastructure and energy.     Gabriela Inchauste 
       is Senior Economist in the Poverty Reduction and Equity 
       Department of the World Bank. Prior to joining the World

       International Monetary Fund and the Inter-American 
       Development Bank where she contributed to operational and 
       analytical activities in a number of countries on topics 
       including macroeconomic forecasting, public expenditure 
       policy, poverty and social impact analysis, fiscal and 
       debt sustainability analysis, post-disaster needs 
       assessments, and subsidy reform. She has published 
       articles in academic volumes and journals on fiscal policy
       and decentralization, the impact of crises on the poor, 
       and the informal sector. She has contributed to a number 
       of World Bank Poverty Assessments, Public Expenditure 
       Reviews, and the recent World Development Report on Jobs. 
       Her current work focuses on decomposing the contributions 
       to poverty and inequality reduction. Gabriela holds a
