Is geography destiny? lessons from Latin America by John Luke Gallup ( )
16 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For decades, the prevailing sentiment was that since geography is unchangeable, there is no reason why public policies should take it into account. In fact, charges that geographic interpretations of development were deterministic, or even racist, made the subject a virtual taboo in academic and policymaking circles alike. Is Geography Destiny? Challenges that premise and 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 i

Forty years after president Richard Nixon declared the "war against drugs", the debate about the efficiency and cost of the prohibition is still as vigorous as ever.

VISA USA : fortunas y extravíos de los emigrantes colombianos en los Estados Unidos by Alejandro Gaviria ( Book )
4 editions published in 2004 in Spanish and held by 11 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

Parental actions and siblings' inequality by Momi Dahan ( Book )
3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The model presented in the paper generates important implications concerning how the allocation of resources between children varies across income groups. In the model, poor and middle-income families tend to channel their resources into a few children whereas rich families (and perhaps very poor families as well) tend to allocate resources more evenly. As a result, poor and middle- income families tend to generate more inequality relative to richer families
