Any recollection of the performance of the Latin American economies during the so-called "Lost Decade" of the 1980s should suffice to convince us how much the region has progressed over the last two decades. Particularly during the last ten years the region has enjoyed, for the most part, financial and price stability, reasonable economic growth, a substantial reduction in poverty rates, and improvements in income distribution.
As this report makes clear, however, it would be a terrible mistake for Latin American governments and societies to be complacent about the challenges in front of them. The report provides an excellent description of the challenges that will have to be overcome, but also rightly identifies the significant strengths that the Latin American economies already have.
