From few to many ten years of health insurance expansion in Colombia by Amanda Glassman( )
6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,111 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

Economic and social development into the XXI Century by Conference Development Thinking and Practice( Book )
5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 390 WorldCat member 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."--Jacket
Beyond borders the new regionalism in Latin America ( )
5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 333 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
