Abstract

The volume aims to document and explain the sizeable decline of income inequality that has taken place in Latin America during the 2000s. It does so through an exploration of inequality changes in six representative countries, and ten policy chapters dealing with macroeconomics, foreign trade, taxation, labour market, human capital formation, and social assistance, which point to the emergence of a ‘new policy model’. Petterson Molina Vale is impressed with the unique contributions this volume contains, and recommends this read to students of Latin American policy and economics.
