Progress Against Poverty by Santiago Levy

Book Description

In 1997, Mexico launched a new incentive-based poverty reduction program to enhance the human capital of those living in extreme poverty. This book presents a case study of Progresa-Oportunidades, focusing on the main factors that have contributed to the program's sustainability, policies that have allowed it to operate at the national level, and future challenges.

No Growth without Equity? by Santiago Levy No Growth without Equity?, Paperback (March 2009)

This book examines the relationship between equity and growth in Mexico. It looks at how specific inequalities in power, wealth and status have created and sustained economic institutions and polices that both tend to perpetuate these inequalities and are sources of inefficiencies and lack of dynamism in the economy.

Good Intentions, Bad Outcomes by Santiago Levy Good Intentions, Bad Outcomes, Paperback (April 2008)

Despite various reform efforts, Mexico has experienced economic stability but little growth. Today more than half of all Mexican workers are employed informally, and one out of every four is poor.
