The political economy of Central America since 1920 by V Bulmer-Thomas( Book )

33 editions published between 1987 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 827 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book Victor Bulmer-Thomas uses his previously unpublished estimates of the national accounts to explore economic and social development in the five Central American republics from 1920. He examines in detail variations in economic policy between countries which help to account for differences in performance. The major political developments are woven into the analysis and linked to changes in internal and external conditions. Growth under liberal oligarchic rule in the 1920s, heavily dependent on exports of coffee and bananas, was accompanied by modest reform programmes. The 1929 depression, which hit the region hard, undermined most of the reforms and ushered in a period of dictatorial rule in all republics except Costa Rica. The Second World War, particularly after the entry of the United States, at first strengthened the dictatorships, but ultimately produced challenges to rule by authoritarian caudillos. The social upheavals accompanying the post-war export-led boom forced governments in each republic to address the question of economic, social and political reform
Mexico and the North American Free Trade Agreement : who will benefit?( Book )

17 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 680 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By joining in a free trade agreement with Canada and the United States, Mexico has become the first independent developing country to be integrated with developed countries. While Mexico is expected to derive net benefits from this arrangement, it is clear that there will be losers as well as gainers. In addition, the evercloser integration between Mexico and the rest of North America carries implications for Mexico's relationship with the rest of the world. All of these changes must be managed within a political system which has traditionally resolved such pressures in a relatively authoritarian way. This book explores the economic as well as socio-political dimensions of the changes expected in Mexico and the question whether economic liberalisation will necessarily lead to political liberalisation

It is divided into three parts, each centered around a particular case study: the first focuses on the nineteenth century (, ♯T︢he Age of Free Trade, ♯)̮; the second considers the period up to 1960 (, ♯T︢he Age of Preferences, ♯)̮; and the final section concerns the half century from the Cuban Revolution to the present (, ♯T︢he Age of Globalization, ♯)̮. The study makes use of a specially constructed database to observe trends across the whole region and chart the progress of nearly thirty individual countries.
