About the product

In 1986 the evolution of the Latin American economy was marked by contradictory changes. While the main variables used to measure domestic economic performance showed some improvement, the situation of the external sector worsened considerably. Thus, although the rate of economic growth picked up and unemployment and inflation slackened, the terms of trade worsened, the trade surplus fell and the balance-of-payments deficit increased sharply.
