We study the causes of low growth in El Salvador, a country with an impressive record of political, macroeconomic, and structural reform. We apply a growth diagnostic methodology and conclude that market failures in the process of self-discovering" the country´s productive potential is a main obstacle to investment and growth. We propose a set of policies to tackle this constraint."
