A look at how the low productivity in Latin America and the Caribbean is preventing the region from catching up with the developed world. The authors look beyond the traditional macro explanations and dig all the way down to the industry and firm level to uncover the causes. The book examines productivity growth by focusing on the extreme heterogeneity of sectors and firms, emphasizing the importance of policies that allow firms to thrive and expand. The book zeros in on the critical services sectors, particularly those, such as transportation and retail, with important repercussions on the rest of the economy. It challenges the argument that the region is condemned to stagnation and examines a number of policy levers that can transform its economies.Manual de Bogota..
