The purpose of the Research Bulletin is to provide a forum where research relevant to the Botswana economy can be disseminated. Although produced by the Bank of Botswana, the Bank claims no copyright on the content of the papers. If the material is used elsewhere, an appropriate acknowledgement is expected.
The Research Bulletin (RB) presents short, topical research papers written by Bank of Botswana Economists, which provide insights on current events in finance, banking, markets and economics in general. The RB is, therefore, a platform for both upcoming and mature Economists to showcase their knowledge and views on economic issues and trends, and is therefore, a resource for informing policy decisions, and adds to economic literature.
