Peru, 1890-1977 : growth and policy in an open economy by Rosemary Thorp( Book )

38 editions published between 1977 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 781 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Este trabajo se centra en el período, de casi 100 años de duración, que se inicia con el fin de la era del guano. En realidad, la historia económica post colonial del Perú puede ser vista como una serie de grandes ciclos de exportación y, por eso mismo, los sectores productivos orientados hacia el mercado externo han desempeñado un papel primordial en la configuración económica de nuestro país. Esta obra reconstruye de manera pormenorizada la historia a partir del momento en que se empieza a explorar, en la década de 1890, las nuevas direcciones del primer período de transición, y concluye cuando la economía entra en crisis a mediados de la década de 1970. Este libro constituye un clásico de la historia económica del Perú. Su revisión es una lectura obligada para todos aquellos que desean comprender las características estructurales de nuestra economía. Rosemary Thorp Es profesora emérita de Economía latinoamericana de la Universidad de Oxford y miembro emérito del St. Antony's College. Posee un doctorado honoris causa por la Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú y una cátedra honoraria en la Universidad del Pacífico. Su libro más reciente sobre el Perú es Etnicidad y la persistencia de la desigualdad: el caso del Perú (2011), en coautoría con Maritza Paredes. Su libro Progreso, pobreza y exclusión: una historia económica de América Latina en el siglo XX, escrito por invitación del BID, es un libro de texto muy utilizado. Geoffrey Bertram Es asociado senior en el Instituto de Gobernanza y Estudios Políticos, y profesor adjunto en el Instituto de Investigación del Cambio Climático en la Universidad de Victoria.

This book explores the impact on Latin America of the extraordinary transformation of the international economy that took place in the half century or so that preceded the world depression of the 1930s.

The interplay of economic developments with political and social structures had profound and varied effects on policy-making and on institutions that were of great significance for later decades

Ethnicity and the persistence of inequality : the case of Peru by Rosemary Thorp( Book )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Understanding why inequality is so great and has persevered for centuries in a number of Latin American countries requires tools that go beyond economics. Investigating the case of Peru, this book explores how inequality is embedded in institutions that constitute the interface between the economy, the polity and geography of the country. Understanding why inequality is so great and has persevered for centuries in a number of Latin American countries requires tools that go beyond economics. Inequality between indigenous groups and others has been particularly harsh and persistent. This book applies a truly interdisciplinary approach to the specific case of Peru, seeking out the dynamics of the interactions between the society, the polity, the geography and the economy. Ethnic discrimination and prejudice emerge as central themes, explored through people's own perceptions and life experiences. The book attempts to extend the boundaries of our understanding and contributes to the growing interest in ethnicity and conflict by developing and exploring the interactions between institutions and the inequalities between groups

Gender inequalities and development in Latin America during the twentieth century by María Magdalena Camou( Book )

9 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents evidence of the evolution of the gender inequalities in Latin America during the twentieth century, using basic indicators of human development, namely education, health and the labour market. There are very few historical studies that centre on gender as the main analytical category in Latin America, so this book breaks new ground. Using case-studies from Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Uruguay, the authors show that there is evidence of a correlation between economic growth and the decrease in gender inequality, but this process is also not linear. Although the activity rate of women was high at the beginning of the twentieth century, female participation in the labour market diminished, until the 1970s, when it began to increase dramatically. Since the 1970s, fertility reduction and education improvements and worsening labour market conditions are associated to the steadily increase of women participation in the labour market. By gauging the extent to which gender gaps in the formation of human capital, access to resources, quality of life and opportunities may have operated as a restriction on women's capabilities and on economic growth in the region, this book demonstrates that Latin America has lagged behind in terms of gender equality
