Abstract

The objective of this paper is to take stock of the changes in the economy and in economic and social policies in Latin America in the last 30 years in which to frame the changes in poverty and inequality in the region. Thus, the main thesis of the paper argues that, beyond the improvements that indicators of poverty and inequality in the region in recent years show, these changes have a framework of complex processes of the transformation of the economies, ideologies and economic social and economic policies in multiple dimensions that must be taken into account to achieve a deep understanding of what happened.
