About this book


This volume deals with macroeconomic issues and their relation with economic growth. Frustrating GDP growth has been a lasting feature of Latin American economies since the 1980s. Analyzing the policy measures that were taken in a bid to avoid costly mistakes and recover economic growth, this volume examines existing reforms and suggests areas of policy change to achieve macroeconomics for growth.
