Abstract

(Disponible en idioma inglés únicamente) La enorme riqueza de recursos naturales de América Latina tiene efectos en muchos países de la región. La apertura económica en varios países fue seguida por un crecimiento rápido de la inversión extranjera y exportaciones de productos en cuya elaboración se emplean recursos naturales intensivamente. El crecimiento de sectores manufactureros que hacen uso intensivo de la mano de obra fue mucho menor. ¿Qué significa el aumento de la dependencia en sectores basados en recursos naturales para las perspectivas de desarrollo y la distribución del ingreso?
