Developing Latin America: A Modernization Perspective

Front Cover
Greenwood Press, 1984 - Business & Economics - 416 pages

The countries of Latin America are plagued by poverty, high rates of population growth and unemployment, low growth in their gross national product, low rates of industrialization, high dependencee on agriculture, and uneven income distribution. Low income and growth reflect structural weaknesses which will prevent more rapid economic development if major changes are not made. The real problem for policy makers is how to combine overall economic growth with a more equitable distribution of income and assistance. This volume examines current issues and trends, methods, strategies, and policies for modernization in Latin America.
