A Moment of Equality for Latin America?: Challenges for Redistribution (Entangled Inequalities: Exploring Global Asymmetries)

 
9781472446725: A Moment of Equality for Latin America?: Challenges for Redistribution (Entangled Inequalities: Exploring Global Asymmetries)

Unlike other regions around the world, several Latin American countries have managed to reduce income inequality over the last decade. Higher growth rates and growing employment, but also innovative wage policies and social programs, have contributed to reducing poverty and narrow income disparities. Yet, despite this progress, nation-states in the region demonstrate little capacity to substantially change their patterns of deeply rooted inequalities. Focusing on the limits and challenges of redistributive policies in Latin America, this volume synthesizes and updates the discussion of inequality in the region, introducing the perspective of global and transnational interdependencies. The book explores the extent to which redistributive policies have been interlinked with the provision and quality of public goods as well as with structural changes of the productive sector. Inspired by structuralist and neostructuralist thinking of Latin American economists, such as Raúl Prebisch and Celso Furtado, authors question the redistributive impact of the interplay of recent macroeconomic, fiscal and social policies, particularly under left and center-left administrations committed to greater equality. Bringing together experts in social, fiscal and macroeconomic policies to investigate the interdependent and global character of inequalities, this book will appeal to scholars of sociology, economics, development and politics with interests in Latin America, inequality and public policy.

Barbara Fritz is Professor of Economics at the Institute for Latin American Studies, Freie Universität Berlin, Germany and co-editor of New Issues in Regional Monetary Coordination: Understanding North-South and South-South Arrangements.

Lena Lavinas is Professor of Welfare Economics at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and has recently authored ’21st Century Welfare’ in New Left Review.

Review:

'By exploring the links between macroeconomic policy, social spending and labor markets, this volume offers a unique perspective on the many remaining challenges to sustaining the reduction of inequality in Latin America. A prestigious group of contributors from Europe and Latin America also demonstrate why students, academics and policymakers should care about Keynesian economics, Latin American structuralism and critical political economy.' Diego Sanchez-Ancochea, University of Oxford, UK 'While still being a region of high inequality, Latin America is experiencing a unique process of inequality reduction at this present time. We all want to know whether Latin America can continue to grow with increasing equity. This book presents a very rich sample of analysis of a wide range of topics which are part of this intricate puzzle. It is difficult to find a more interesting and important subject or a better sample of chapters.' Luis Bertola, University of the Republic, Uruguay
