About the product

This research produced evidence about the contribution of investment and other sources to the growth process of Latin America during 1960-2002. Alternative growth accounting methodologies were used to measure the contributions of the sources of growth to GDP growth during 1960-2002. The study also provides evidence of the effects of investments in machinery and equipment and construction structures, and the effects of private and public investment on per capita GDP growth.
