Beyond reforms : structural dynamics and macroeconomic vulnerability by José Antonio Ocampo ( )
19 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 739 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Beyond Reforms reviews long-term growth and development patterns and focuses on macroeconomic vulnerability and its social effects. The eight chapters offer theoretical and methodological contributions that share a common focus: how to improve the frustratingly poor economic performance in Latin America, as well as in other parts of the developing world, experienced during the recent phase of economic liberalization." "This collection presents a more precise view of the risks and challenges that characterize the new economic era and advances a set of alternative economic policies to manage the open developing-country economies of the early twenty-first century. Ideas that have been absent from the reform agenda over the past two decades are recognized as critical in fostering the improved economic and social performance that liberalization has so far failed to produce."--BOOK JACKET

An economic history of twentieth-century Latin America ( Book )
12 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the 1990s, 'protection', 'import substitution' and 'intervention' have become dirty words, part of the 'leyenda negra' of Latin America development in the postwar period. This book attempts a fresh look at the controversial years between the end of the Second World War and the point when, at varying dates in different countries, a discontinuity occurs in which the postwar 'style of development' ceased to play a central role in the economic evolution of the region. The analysis is based on seven case studies covering eleven countries

Uneven economic development ( Book )
10 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In Uneven Economic Development, leading economists and development experts examine the causes and implications of international economic divergences. This comprehensive and timely book reviews economic growth and structural change patterns since the 1960s, before critically reviewing the respective role and impact of trade liberalization, macroeconomic policies, governance and institutions on comparative national economic performance, particularly in developing countries. With country studies included to exemplify the issues at hand, this is a definitive guide to identifying, addressing and perhaps even finding a solution to this global phenomenon."--BOOK JACKET
International finance and development ( Book )
16 editions published in 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"International Finance and Development offers a comprehensive survey of the major financing issues influencing economic development since the historic Monterrey Consensus of the International Conference on Financing for Development in 2002. As most recent international private capital flows have been unlikely to significantly enhance new productive investments in the developing countries, it is necessary to design appropriate mechanisms to ensure they contribute to development. However, recent trends in official development financing offer some grounds for optimism, although much more needs to be done. External debt problems of many developing countries, especially the least developed countries, seem likely to continue to constrain their prospects for development. The final part on systemic issues highlights new concerns and the modest progress in ensuring that the international monetary and financial system better serves economic growth and development throughout the world, especially in the developing countries."--BOOK JACKET

8 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Economic structuralists use a broad, systemwide approach to understanding development, and this textbook assumes a structuralist perspective in its investigation of why a host of developing countries have failed to grow at 2 percent or more since 1960. Sensitive to the wide range of factors that affect an economy's strength and stability, the authors identify the problems that have long frustrated growth in many parts of the developing world while suggesting new strategies and policies to help improve standards of living. After a survey of structuralist methods and post-World War
Growth divergences : explaining differences in economic performance ( Book )
9 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In recent years, most developing countries have grown faster than the developed economies. This volume of analytical studies seeks to explain major differences in economic performance in recent decades by considering the dynamics of international economic growth, diverging growth rate, economic structures, and sources of demand, successes and collapses in the developing world, recent episodes of real income stagnation of countries. Several chapters critically review latest misleading claims and the conventional wisdom regarding the relationship of trade liberalization, financial development, development, aid, infrastructure spending, violent conflict, good governance, and industrial policy to economic growth.--Publisher's description

Development cooperation in times of crisis by José Antonio Alonso ( Book )
7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Leading governments undertook extraordinary measures to offset the 2008 economic crisis, shoring up financial institutions, stimulating demand to reverse recession, and rebalancing budgets to alleviate sovereign debt. While productive in and of themselves, these solutions were effective because they were coordinated internationally and were matched with sweeping global financial reforms. Unfortunately, coordination has weakened after these initial steps, indicating one of the crisis's adverse effects will be a significant reduction in development cooperation. Urging advanced nations to improve their support for development, the contributors to this volume revisit the causes of the 2008 collapse and the ongoing effects of recession on global and developing economies. They reevaluate the international response to crisis and suggest more effective approaches to development cooperation. Experts on international aid join together to redesign the cooperation system and its governance, so it can accept new actors and better achieve the Millennial Development Goals of 2015 within the context of severe global crisis. In their introduction, Jose Antonio Alonso and Jose Antonio Ocampo summarize different chapters and the implications of their analyses, concluding with a frank assessment of global economic imbalance and the ability of increased cooperation to rectify these inequalities

6 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The final decade of twentieth century was momentous for Latin America, as it witnessed sweeping changes with regard to previous trends in the region. Most important were the revival of economic growth and the reduction of poverty. Another significant phenomenon was impact of international crises on Latin American countries. This book analyzes what happened between 1990 and 1999 and revisits issues of interest to ECLAC, using the same approach that has characterized the Social Panorama of Latin America. Analysis begins with a look at poverty, income distribution, employment, occupational stratification, the role of education, the intergenerational transmission of opportunities for achieving well-being and the contribution of social spending to the improvement of the population's standard of living and at interrelationships between these dimensions and economic growth. It also uses opinion polls carried out in many of the countries to describe the Latin American population's subjective reactions changes in the 1990s--Publisher's description
