On the economics of development: A view from Latin America

Edmar Bacha

PSL Quarterly Review, 2018, vol. 71, issue 286, 327-349

Abstract: This paper surveys my research on development economics, undertaken in the context of the historical experiences of Brazil and Latin America. The research consists of academic papers, essays, economic fables, and reflections on my experiences in policy making. It spans different fields, including income distribution, industrial policies, dollar constraints and debt crises, commodity booms and coffee valorization, high inflation and stabilization policies, and Brazil’s growth record.
