520    Latin America's economic performance is mediocre at best, 
       despite abundant natural resources and flourishing 
       neighbors to the north. The perplexing question of how 
       some of the wealthiest nations in the world in the 
       nineteenth century are now the most crisis-prone has long 
       puzzled economists and historians. The Decline of Latin 
       American Economies examines the reality behind the 
       struggling economies of Argentina, Chile, and Mexico. A 
       distinguished panel of experts argues here that slow 
       growth, rampant protectionism, and rising inflation 
       plagued Latin America for years, where corrupt 
       institutions and political unrest undermined the financial
       outlook of already besieged economies. Tracing Latin 
       America's growth and decline through two centuries, this 
       volume illustrates how a once-prosperous continent now 
       lags behind. Of interest to scholars and policymakers 
       alike, it offers new insight into the relationship between
       political systems and economic development
