Summary

In the 1990s, "protection," "import substitution," and "intervention" have become dirty words, part of the "leyenda negra" of Latin America development in the post-war period. This book attempts a fresh look at the controversial years between the end of the Second World War and the point when, at varying dates in different countries, a discontinuity occurs in which the post-war "style of development" ceased to play a central role in the economic evolution of the region. The analysis is based on seven case studies covering 11countries.
