This book is the result of years of work by a large team of economists and regional specialists established at the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America (ECLA). It is clearly one of the most comprehensively researched and authoritative studies done on the topic yet. To be sure, it is much too early to give any sort of definitive assessment on the reforms, but the time is ripe to sketch a preliminary picture. The study is very representative of Latin America, focusing on nine countries (Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Jamaica, Mexico, and Peru) comprising 81 percent of the region's total population and 90 percent of its Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
