Indicadores sectoriales y desarrollo economico en Latinoamerica


  • Gardella, Rodrigo
  • Alvarez, Lia


A traves de un analisis comparativo de 21 paises latinoamericanos se demuestra el efecto positivo que tiene la Industria, el Comercio Exterior y el Turismo sobre el desarrollo economico de un pais. Sin embargo, el crecimiento, en terminos per capita, ha sido demasiado moderado para la mayoria de los paises latinoamericanos en los ultimos años, en algunos casos debido a un excesivo aumento de la poblacion (como en Brasil y Mexico), y en otros, por el limitado crecimiento o simplemente estancamiento de los niveles de produccion. We analyse the positive effects of industry, external trade and tourism on economic development, with a comparative study of twenty-one Latin American countries and an especial reference to the case of MERCOSUR and Andean Community. Besides tourism the industrial evolution is also very important to improve the development of services sector through some intersectoral relations.
