Why haven't at least some Latin American countries reached the status of developed country? Why are there such important differences in the degree of development of different Latin American countries? To what extent have foreign countries and institutions influenced the choice of economic policies? Why has Latin America abandoned import substitution industrialization? Are the current attempts at deeper integration into the global economy conducive to economic development, or are they detrimental to the region's poor (or both)? By exploring these and other questions, this course provides an introduction to Latin America's economic development. In our exploration, we draw on economic analysis, historical narratives, and case studies.
