Art of Latin America, 1900-1980 by Marta Traba( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 773 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Marta Traba was particularly well suited for this analysis of Latin American art. Born in Argentina in 1930, she studied art history in Buenos Aires, Paris, and Rome. At age 23, she went to Colombia, where she initiated her career as a critic and writer in all fields of arts and letters. By the time she came to the United States in 1979 to lecture by invitation at some of the nation's top universities, she stood at the forefront of art criticism in Latin America and the Caribbean." "In his foreword to this book, former President of Colombia Belisario Betancur writes, "This valuable study represents a valiant effort to present a view of Latin American art as a coherent whole, rather than a disjointed summary of artistic achievement in the individual countries of the areas ... Making her way through the thicket of the area's social disturbances, cultural conflicts, abundant needs, and scanty satisfactions, Marta Traba comes somewhat closer to the utopian goal of assigning an identity to Latin American art.""--Jacket

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

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 562 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

Democracies in development : politics and reform in Latin America by Mark Payne( Book )

6 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 383 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

10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Improves our understanding of the determinants of well-being in Latin America using a broad "quality-of-life" concept that challenges standard assumptions in economics, including those about the relationship between happiness and income.

The emergence of China : opportunities and challenges for Latin America and the Caribbean by Robert M Devlin( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Emergence of China: Opportunities and Challenges for Latin America and the Caribbean provides a comprehensive overview of China's economic policy and performance over recent decades and contrasts them with the Latin American experience. What are the underlying factors behind China's competitive edge? What are the strategic implications of China's rise for growth and development in Latin America? 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

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

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 150 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

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

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 100 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
From few to many : ten years of health insurance expansion in Colombia by Amanda Glassman( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 89 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
