Sull’economia dello sviluppo: una visione dall’America Latina

Edmar Bacha

Abstract


L’articolo ripercorre il percorso di ricerca dell’autore nell’ambito dell’economia dello sviluppo, con particolare riguardo alle esperienze del Brasile e dell’America Latina. Negli anni l’autore ha contribuito al dibattito con articoli accademici, saggi, fiabe economiche, e riflessioni sull’esperienza personale in campo politico. I principali temi affrontati sono la distribuzione dei redditi, le politiche industriali, le crisi debitorie, i prezzi delle materie prime, l’inflazione e le politiche di stabilizzazione, e la crescita in Brasile.

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.
