Finance for development Latin America in comparative perspective by Barbara Stallings( file )
5 editions published in 2006 in Spanish and English and held by 1,573 libraries worldwide
"Access to finance is a critical element in any effort to promote development in emerging market economies. In this analysis of the Latin American financial sector, Barbara Stallings and Rogerio Studart examine recent transformations in the region, compare them to related developments elsewhere, and consider where they might lead. They challenge the new literature on finance and development, which argues for the elimination of public-sector banks, substitution of private monitoring for government regulation and supervision, and more complete integration with international capital markets. Rather, the authors advocate a more balanced approach that emphasizes individual country situation and strengthens the institutional context in which financial systems operate." "Case studies illustrate changes occurring in Chile, Mexico, and Brazil - the most sophisticated financial systems in Latin America. The authors place particular emphasis on the need to overcome two types of market failure: the lack of long-term finance for investment and access to credit for small firms. They conclude with policy recommendations for strengthening Latin American banks and capital markets so that they can play a greater role in supporting economic development."--Jacket

Ageing, human rights and public policies ( Computer File )
4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 524 libraries worldwide
Two aspects of the gradual but inexorable aging of the population in Latin America and the Caribbean are of particular concern. One is that the population is aging faster in the region than it did historically in the developed countries. The other is the regional context of unrelenting inequality, weak institutional development, the poor coverage and quality of social protection systems and the high demands placed on the family to provide security and protection. This book examines the aging phenomenon from the demographic perspective, the guaranteeing of human rights in old-age and the public policies that the countries of the region are deploying in fulfillment of agreements arising from the first and second meetings of the Regional Intergovernmental Conference on Aging in Latin America and the Caribbean (2003 and 2007). The book sets out the framework of rights-based social protection policies and how they apply to the particular situation of the elderly population and looks at the status of older persons in terms of income security, access to health and inclusive environments. It also examines the impacts of population aging on social protection systems - pensions, health and social services - and gives a general overview of the state of play of older persons' rights in national legislations and public policies implemented in the region. It concludes with a summary of the main challenges that population aging poses to the building of democratic and inclusive societies and emphasizes the need to move forward in adapting policy responses to the demographic panorama of the coming decades.--Publisher's description

Beyond reforms : structural dynamics and macroeconomic vulnerability by José Antonio Ocampo( Book )
6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 480 libraries worldwide
"Beyond Reforms reviews long-term growth and development patterns and focuses on macroeconomic vulnerability and its social effects. The eight chapters offer theoretical and methodological contributions that share a common focus: how to improve the frustratingly poor economic performance in Latin America, as well as in other parts of the developing world, experienced during the recent phase of economic liberalization." "This collection presents a more precise view of the risks and challenges that characterize the new economic era and advances a set of alternative economic policies to manage the open developing-country economies of the early twenty-first century. Ideas that have been absent from the reform agenda over the past two decades are recognized as critical in fostering the improved economic and social performance that liberalization has so far failed to produce."--BOOK JACKET
