Canning House and ILAS are pleased to invite you to attend the launch of The Economic Development of Latin America since Independence by José Antonio Ocampo and Luis Bértola
Speakers: Dr Jose Antonio Ocampo & Professor Colin Lewis

Followed by a Q&A session.
Latin America is attracting increasing interest due to the strong economic performance of the last decade and to the political changes that are taking place. This book gives a unique, comprehensive, and up to date view of Latin America economic development over the two centuries since Independence. It considers Latin American economies within the wider context of the international economy, and covers economic growth, international trade, capital flows, and trends in inequality and human development.
With chapters that cover different eras, it traces the major developments of Latin American countries and offers a novel and coherent interpretation of the economic history of the region. It combines a wealth of original research, new perspectives, and empirical information to provide a synthesis of the growing literature that both complements and extends previous studies.
José Antonio Ocampo is former Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations for Economic and Social Affairs, former Executive Secretary of the UN Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean, and former Minister of Finance, Agriculture, and Planning of Colombia.
Prof. Colin Lewis is Associate Fellow of the Institute of Latin American Studies, University of London, and an overseas member of the Argentinian Academy of History and of the editorial boards of Estudios de Sociologia and Historia Económica + Historia de Empresa. His major periods of field research have been spent in São Paulo, Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, and Recife, with brief field trips to Antofagasta, Lima and Santiago de Chile.
Dr Francisco Panizza is Associate Professor in Latin American Politics in the Department of Government at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
