This timely publication analyses the development challenge faced by Latin America at a time at which the concerns for the large inequality in the region are at a peak. In economies with average per-capita GDP about one-quarter to one-fifth of that of richer economies, tackling the challenge of producing equitable growth emerges as a requisite for reducing the development gap with rich countries. This volume focuses on growth-with-equity, written by an outstanding group of Latin American and international researchers and policy-makers.
