Is geography destiny? : lessons from Latin America by John Luke Gallup( Book )

30 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Challenging the premise that geography is destiny, this book joins a growing body of literature studying the links between geography and development. Focusing on Latin America, the book argues that based on a better understanding of geography, public policy can help control or channel its influence toward the goals of economic and social development. The principal purpose of this book is to contribute to the renaissance in research on geography as a factor that influences, but does not necessarily determine, development

3 editions published in 2004 in Spanish and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Este artículo intenta responder tres preguntas sobre los emigrantes colombianos en los Estados Unidos, a saber: ¿Cuántos son y cuando llegaron?, ¿cuál es su perfil socioeconómico?, y ¿qué tan grandes son las diferencias salariales respecto a los residentes en Colombia con similar educación y experiencia? Los resultados muestran que la población emigrante está por debajo del millón de habitantes (a pesar de la aceleración reciente de los flujos migratorios), que los emigrantes tienen al menos tres años más de educación que los residentes en Colombia, y que sus ingresos laborales son al menos dos veces mayores. Los resultados muestran, de otro lado, que la emigración hacia Estados Unidos es una alternativa viable para hogares de clase media en dificultades, no para hogares pobres en busca de mejores oportunidades
