Abstract this paper is contribute to the characterisation and understanding of Latin American business cycle. In particular, we date turning points, analyse asymmetries between expansions and recessions-in terms of magnitude, duration, and volatility-, and measure international synchronisation of business cycle regimes. To do so, we apply the methodology developed by Artis, Kontolemis and Osborn (1997) to the level of real GDP per capita for right Latin American countries to identify and characterise classical business cycles. Then, we analyse international synchronisation of regimes.
