Beyond tradeoffs : market reforms and equitable growth in Latin America( )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,617 WorldCat member 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

From few to many : ten years of health insurance expansion in Colombia by Maria-Luisa Escobar( )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 985 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 1990s the nation of Colombia introduced mandatory health insurance, with the goals of improving access to care and protecting the population from impoverishing and inefficient spending as well as the hardships of illness and care-seeking. Financed through a combination of payroll contributions and general taxation, this comprehensive plan included a contributory regime for those able to pay and a fully subsidized regime for the extremely poor. From Few to Many presents the results and lessons drawn from a decade of reform implementation. The authors examine changes in the financing and d
Art of Latin America, 1900-1980 by Marta Traba( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 770 WorldCat member 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."

The health of women in Latin America and the Caribbean by Ruth Levine( )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 694 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study has two main objectives: 1) to analyze trends and differences in women's health, examples of good practices in delivery and financing of women's health programs; and the key dimensions of women's health that are relevant for the health reforms currently underway in Latin America; and 2) to provide guidance for governments and program designers in addressing the most pressing causes of women's ill health, within the context of broader sectoral and national policies. The report is divided into five sections. This overview highlights the rationale for focusing on the topic of women's health, along with a conceptual framework for understanding the determinants of women's health and the role of health policy. Chapter 1 describes major trends and differentials in women's health in Latin America and the Caribbean, grouping countries into four broad categories according to trends in health, demographic, and socioeconomic indicators. Chapter 2 turns to a discussion of success, utilization, and spending on women's health, providing the results of new analyses for seven countries. Chapter 3 provides an overview of the links between women's health and health reform. It emphasizes potential synergies and opportunities to integrate women's health concerns in broader reform initiatives and points out risks to be avoided. The final chapter presents concluding remarks and recommendations

These questions open new avenues for thinking about revitalizing development strategies in Latin America in the face of China's successful development and reduction of poverty. This insightful report is a must-read for analysts, policymakers, and development practitioners, not only in Latin America and the Caribbean, but wherever China's presence is being felt."--Jacket

Entrepreneurship in Latin America : a step up the social ladder? by Eduardo Lora( )

5 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book looks at both the potential and limits of policies to promote entrepreneurship as an important vehicle for social mobility in Latin America and the Caribbean. Who are the region's entrepreneurs? They tend to be middle-aged males with secondary and, often, tertiary education who represent only a small segment of the economically-active population in the six countries considered in this book. They come from families in which a parent is, or was, an entrepreneur. In fact, a parent's occupation is more important in the decision to become an entrepreneur than a parent's wealth, income or
Democracies in development : politics and reform in Latin America by J. Mark Payne( Book )

8 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and Spanish and held by 493 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The spread of democracy over the past two decades in Latin America has contributed significantly to ensuring fundamental political freedom, civil liberties and human rights. Democracies in Development makes it clear that a legitimate and effective democracy is also essential for sustainable economic and social development. The book analyzes the effects of institutions on democratic systems, identifies regional trends in democratic reform, and assesses efforts to enhance governance. Chapters focus on the quality of democratic politics; citizen support for democracy and electoral participation; presidential democracy; political party systems; the balance of power between the executive and legislature; the authority of accountability agencies; and mechanisms to facilitate more direct citizen participation. Appendices outline the institutional structures of the region's democracies and examine voter turnout since 1978. The accompanying CD-ROM features country-by-country election results for presidential and legislative elections."--Jacket

Beyond borders : the new regionalism in Latin America by Inter-American Development Bank( )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although regional integration initiatives have a long history in the world economy, these efforts have expanded significantly since the 1990s. In Latin America and the Caribbean, a wave of regional integration initiatives has included free trade areas, customs unions, and steps towards common markets. The emergence of this "new regionalism" of trade in which global and regional forces complement one another has been driven by such factors as the opening up of economies and structural reforms. This year's edition of "Economic and Social Progress in Latin America" explores the dimensions of integration, macroeconomic coordination, and the effects of regional integration on productivity, market access, foreign direct investment, infrastructure and income inequality. Topics include subregional integration schemes, the multilateral trade agenda launched in Doha, initiatives such as the Free Trade Area of the Americas, and interregional agreements with the European Union
