Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Morley (Inter-American Development Bank) analyzes the effects of Latin American structural adjustment in the 1980s on poverty and distribution of income and compares the adjustment process in different countries, examining factors that allowed some countries greater success than others in protecting the poor. He surveys trends in macroeconomic variables, and relates changes in poverty level and distribution of income to changes in nonincome social indicators such as education and health. Annotation c.
