Abstract: Why are growth rates in Latin America so disappointing? This book reviews the results of an ambitious research project to determine the binding constraints to growth, that is, the barrier whose removal would yield the greatest benefit in terms of growth. Included are case studies from seven countries in the region: Argentina, Brazil, Ecuador, Guatemala, Peru, Nicaragua, Trinidad and Tobago.
