Book: The Financial Crisis and Trade in Latin America/ Caribbean (April 2010)

Rethinking Bretton Woods | Fri, May 28, 2010

This volume, co-published by Center of Concern and the Sistema Economico Latinoamericano y del Caribe (SELA), gathers selected presentations delivered at a consultation with Ministers and senior officials from governments of the Latin America/ Caribbean region.

Trade structures and their linkages with finance played a crucial role in the unfolding of the global financial crisis 2008-09 in Latin American/ Caribbean countries. The presentations in this volume provide an insight into the key issues that economic policy-makers in the region (but also in developing countries beyond) face in their task to ensure that trade is a factor of resilience and sustainability, rather than one that creates vulnerabilities, in their economies.
