"This book proposes an interpretation of Mexican economic history over the past two centuries based on a simple but strong institutional thesis: growth has been fast when there has been a 'developmental consensus' but has slowed down otherwise. It is a must-read for Mexican and Latin American specialists but particularly for institutional economists."--Jose Antonio Ocampo, Professor, Columbia University, and former Executive Secretary of the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean"This book provides our first authoritative survey of Mexico's economic history over the past two hundred years. The authors provide an extremely accessible and comprehensive account, and they provide a particularly incisive evaluation of Mexico's recent economic performance. This book will surely reopen debate and provoke further research on the period since 1940. Particularly commendable is their consistent concern with the stubborn persistence of poverty and inequality in Mexico. This book provides our best account yet of this story as it engages ongoing debates about Mexico's--and Latin America's--economic past and present."--Edward Beatty, University of Notre Dame"One of the most comprehensive overviews of Mexico's economic history since Independence, Development and Growth in the Mexican Economy: A Historical Perspective provides a thoughtful reinterpretation of Mexico's economic development since 1940. All readers will learn from the well-argued and empirically supported new insights. It will undoubtedly become a standard resource on the economic history of Mexico."--Nora Lustig, Shapiro Visiting Professor of International Affairs, George Washington University, and Research Associate, El Colegio de Mexico"Development and Growth in the Mexican Economy provides a useful and sometimes provocative overview of the Mexican economy over the last two centuries. History and economics are interwoven to provide a well-informed book of interest to university teachers and students. The debates on the interaction of Mexican economy and polity complement the historical overview and make this book attractive for university courses."--Carlos Marichal, El Colegio de Mexico"From the Publisher:
This book provides an overview of Mexico's economic development since Independence identifying its binding constraints in different periods and the ways in which they have been tried to be removed by economic policies. It gives special attention to developments since 1940 and presents a re-evaluation, critical of the dominant trend in the economic literature, of Mexico's development policies during the State-led industrialization period from 1940 to 1982 and during the more recent market reform process.
