Regionalism and the Global Economy: The Case of Latin America and the Caribbean


Many books and articles have appeared on the topic of regional integration in Latin America and the Caribbean, yet the debate is far from concluded. There is not only a lack of consensus but also a lack of factual information on important aspects.

By focusing the research primarily on financial issues and by reporting extensively on a two-day discussion between experienced researchers and policymakers which was held at the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean in Santiago de Chile, this book hopes to make a contribution to both providing new information and shaping new opinions.

The four papers presented in this volume are written by well-known experts Percy Mistry, Stephany Griffith-Jones, Ricardo Ffrench-Davis, and Roberto Bouzas. Mistry presents a thought-provoking and broad view of the problem; Griffith-Jones explores the little-researched financial aspects of Latin American integration; Ffrench-Davis focuses on the crucial role of intra-regional trade; Bouzas looks at the policy dilemmas and prospects posed by NAFTA.
