Summary "Progress, Poverty and Exclusion examines the political, institutional and economic forces that shaped Latin America's complex and often paradoxical development process over the 20th century. By examining quantitative data alongside the region's political economies, the book provides historical context for the development strategies, choices, successes and failures of the Latin American countries. A comprehensive Statistical Appendix provides regional and country-by-country data in such areas as GDP, manufacturing, sector productivity, prices, trade, income distribution and living standards."--BOOK JACKET
