On the role of productivity and factor accumulation in economic development in Latin America and the Caribbean by Christian Daude( file )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 16 libraries worldwide
This paper combines development and growth accounting exercises with economic theory to estimate the relative importance of total factor productivity and the accumulation of factors of production in the economic development performance of Latin America. The region's development performance is assessed by contrast with various alternative benchmarks, both advanced countries and peer countries in other regions. The paper finds that total factor productivity is the predominant factor: low and slow productivity, as opposed to impediments to factor accumulation, is the key to understanding Latin America's low income relative to developed economies and its stagnation relative to other developing countries. While policies easing factor accumulation would help somewhat in improving productivity, for the most part, closing the productivity gap requires productivity-specific policies

5 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 10 libraries worldwide
This paper argues that there is no country in Latin America where we can confidently say that income inequality improved during the 1990s. This fact is documented for the 15 countries where comparable household surveys are available. The paper seeks to draw conclusions from the statistics and compares Latin America's increase in inequality with that of developed countries and Eastern Europe
