About this book

This volume examines issues of economic interest faced by Latin America economies in the late Twentieth-century. The fifteen chapters deal with macroeconomic problems, financial crises, the development of trade and trade agreements and labour issues. Of particular interest are the chapters dealing with Argentina, which provide an absorbing background to the financial crisis faced today.
