Abstract

Latin American countries have a better record of income growth than of either creating employment or improving income distribution. They seem incapable of incorporating all those able and willing to work into high productivity employment. They have been unable to achieve a rapid enough growth of income and productivity in the countryside and urban areas, in rural agriculture as well as rural services, in remote provinces as well as in the capital cities, in education, transportation as well as industry and mining, so that all labourers can contribute to output and receive a fair share of aggregate income and expenditures.1
