Capital Movements and Corporate Dominance in Latin America

Edited by Noemi Levy-Orlik, Jorge A. Bustamante-Torres and Louis-Philippe Rochon ()

in Books from Edward Elgar Publishing

Abstract: This book addresses the problems of Latin America, through two of the most important features of the post-Bretton Woods economic order, large corporations and weak financial markets. In turn, it shows that their impact on economic growth and development is feeble and short-lived. This resulted in income concentration and an extremely unequal distribution of wealth in the region.Â
