Beyond tradeoffs market reforms and equitable growth in Latin America ( Book )
7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,404 libraries worldwide
"The essays in this book propose new ways of reducing inequality, not by growth-inhibiting transfers and regulations, but by enhancing efficiency--eliminating consumption subsidies for the wealthy, increasing the productivity of the poor, and shifting to a more labor-and-skill-demanding growth path ... [They] draw on discussions at a conference sponsored by the IDB and the MacArthur Foundation, titled "Inequality-Reducing Growth in Latin America," held in Washington, D.C. in January 1997"--Foreword.
Art of Latin America, 1900-1980 by Marta Traba ( Book )
5 editions published in 1994 in English and Spanish and held by 810 libraries worldwide
"In the five centuries since the historic encounter between the civilizations of the Old and New Worlds, Latin America has spawned a rich and varied range of artistic expression. This diversity is precisely the challenge the late Marta Traba had to face in writing Art of Latin America 1900-1980, a comprehensive look at artists and artistic currents in the southern part of our hemisphere. One of Latin America's most prolific and eloquent art critics, Traba discusses Diego Rivera, Rufino Tamayo, Roberto Matta, Fernando Botero, and more than 1,000 other artists in this text. She completed the work shortly before her 1983 death in a plane crash." "Rich in insights, Art of Latin America, 1900-1980 is an invaluable volume for all students of Latin America. One of the book's strengths is Marta Traba's conviction that an art critic cannot write in a vacuum. She describes how economic, political and social forces influenced the evolution of modern art in Latin America. Thus, the Mexican Muralist Movement not only grew out of the values of the Mexican Revolution but also reflected a new attitude toward art stirred by modernist winds blowing in from Europe. At the time of the Muralist Movement, countries such as Argentina, Brazil, and Mexico that had welcomed considerable numbers of European immigrants became centers of lively experimentation in matters of form. In contrast, countries with larger Indian populations and which were less receptive to immigration - Colombia, Ecuador and Peru, for example - were more receptive to the political influence of Muralism, with its emphasis on indigenous peoples.".

Economic and social development into the XXI Century ( Book )
4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 397 libraries worldwide
"What new directions will development take in the next century? A distinguished group of experts on economic development debated this question in late 1996. Their views of the emerging development consensus are presented in Economic and Social Development into the XXI Century. The authors give special attention to developing countries in Latin America and East Asia. Analyzing the growth of certain East Asian economies, they ask what can be emulated: state-engineered industrial policies? an export push? better initial income distribution? fiscal incentives to promote corporate growth? the region's successful land reform efforts, or the commitment to better education? While agreeing that equity is a major determinant of economic success, they differ regarding how to achieve it."--BOOK JACKET.
