AbstractThis paper shows that in many Latin America countries government expenditure on welfare programmed is in fact quite high and that rather thab the overall scale of these programmes it is their socially divise impact which is at the core of the region's failure to provide a decent level of living to large sectors of its population. The paper examines the current configuration of Latin American public social spending, paying particular attention to these problematic features, and assesses the impact welfare "reforms".
