North American free trade : assessing the impact( Book )

12 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 1,077 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The proposed North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) represents a historic change in relations among Canada, Mexico, and the United States. The effect of the agreement on the three economies has generated controversy and some degree of alarm within each country. In this book, noted trade and development experts review the available literature on the effects of NAFTA on the three member countries and the world trading system. They evaluate how NAFTA will affect areas such as economic growth, employment, income distribution, industry, and agriculture in Canada, Mexico, and the United States, and consider the significance the trade agreement holds for the rest of the world. Drusilla K. Brown begins the discussion by providing an overview and comparison of the general results from recent studies. Raul Hinojosa-Ojeda and Sherman Robinson explore in greater detail the potential effects of NAFTA on wages and employment in Mexico and the United States. Sidney Weintraub reviews industry-specific effects of NAFTA, while Tim Josling explores how the trade agreement specifically will affect agriculture. Robert A. Pastor looks at the noneconomic issues of NAFTA, in particular, the environment, the social agenda, and human rights and democracy. Finally, Carlos Alberto Primo Braga considers the implications of NAFTA on the rest of the world. Following each of these chapters, international scholars assess the alternatives and provide recommendations for future research

Part one addresses labor market institutions in a broader context, such as collective bargaining arrangements, minimum wages and poverty, and optimal unemployment insurance schemes.

These questions are addressed for the region as a whole and in great detail for Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, and Colombia. The book provides a comprehensive description of the existing labor institutions in Latin America, the problems they pose, and the trends in labor market reforms as well as the difficulties encountered by the reform process in specific cases
Shielding the poor : social protection in the developing world( Book )

9 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The poor are most vulnerable to economic crises, natural disasters, or health shocks and are least able to cope with their economic consequences. Yet, for the most part, the poor have no access to social protection and insurance mechanisms. The lack of insurance and coping mechanisms may force the poor to reduce food consumption and investment in their children as well as deplete their scarce assets. These responses irreversibly and negatively affect the productive asset base of the poor and their earning capacity, possibly driving them into a vicious cycle of greater vulnerability and deeper poverty." "Shielding the Poor presents a group of studies on social protection in the developing world from leading researchers. These studies address the issue of vulnerability of the poor to adverse shocks and propose policies to increase their protection and coping capacity. The studies emphasize the need for building permanent institutional structures that help reduce and manage to risks that households face as part of a coherent long-term strategy to reduce poverty and promote social equity." "Policy interventions that improve social protection not only help shield the poor from the adverse consequences of shocks but also boost economic growth and reduce chronic poverty over the longer term by reducing the perverse effects of these shocks on the human and physical capital of the poor and on the economic activities that they undertake."--Jacket

Declining inequality in Latin America : a decade of progress? by Luis Felipe López-Calva( Book )

13 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why is inequality finally declining in a region marked by uncommonly high--and previously persistent--income disparities? And what does it imply for the future? In this excellent book, Lopez-Calva, Lustig, and their outstanding team of authors do not shy away from the complexity inherent in the interaction of economics, policy, and politics that lay behind changes in the distribution of incomes."--Francisco H.G. Ferreira, Deputy Chief Economist for Latin America, World Bank
Attacking poverty by World Bank( Book )

8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Poor people live without fundamental freedoms of action and choice that the better-off take for granted. They often lack adequate food and shelter, education and health, deprivations that keep them from leading the kind of life that everyone values. They also face extreme vulnerability to ill health, economic dislocation, and natural disasters. And they are often exposed to ill treatment by institutions of the state and society and are powerless to influence key decisions affecting their lives. At the start of a new century, poverty remains a global problem of huge proportions. Of the world's 6 billion people, 2.8 billion live on less than $2 a day and 1.2 billion on less than $1 a day. Eight out of every 100 infants do not live to see their fifth birthday. Nine of every 100 boys and 14 of every 100 girls who reach school age do not attend school. Poverty is also evident in poor people's lack of political power and voice and in their extreme vulnerability to ill health, economic dislocation, personal violence and natural disasters. And the scourge of HIV/AIDS, the frequency and brutality of civil conflicts, and rising disparities between rich countries and the developing world have increased the sense of deprivation and injustice for many."--Http://web.worldbank.org
Social protection for equity and growth by Inter-American Development Bank( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides recommendations to reduce the economic vulnerability of the poor to shocks and help them cope with downturns in income. Social protection refers to public interventions - including labor market measures, social safety nets, pension systems and calamity funds - that can lessen the impact of these sudden events. They target low-income groups with precarious employment conditions or limited access to social security or other insurance systems. These groups often live near the subsistence level and lack the economic or politicl power to push for policies that can respond to their needs during times of crisis

Declining Inequality in Latin America in the 2000s : the Cases of Argentina, Brazil, and Mexico by Nora Lustig( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Between 2000 and 2010, the Gini coefficient declined in 13 of 17 Latin American countries. The decline was statistically significant and robust to changes in the time interval, inequality measures, and data sources. In-depth country studies for Argentina, Brazil, and Mexico suggest two main phenomena underlie this trend: a fall in the premium to skilled labor and more progressive government transfers. The fall in the premium to skills resulted from a combination of supply, demand, and institutional factors. Their relative importance depends on the country"--Abstract
