Economic Mobility and the Rise of the Latin American Middle Class
Autor: World Bank Publications
In this important, encouraging study, a group of World Bank economists smashes the long-standing image of Latin America as a stagnant region marred by a yawning rich-poor divide. The authors? statistics demonstrate that during the last two decades, economic growth and effective programs to redistribute wealth have ushered in a large middle class, defined as people living in households with annual incomes higher than $14,600. One hundred and fifty million Latin Americans now fit that definition, an impressive 30 percent of the region?s population, according to the authors. In addition, another 38 per-cent now belong to a lower-middle class that is less educated but no longer poor. Thus, according to these statistics, Latin America is no longer predominantly poor: a hard-won transformation of historic proportions. Not content to simply report this remarkable progress, the study?s authors worry that this new middle class will join the region?s rich elites in neglecting those still struggling to improve their lots. They urge Latin American governments to draft a more sustainable social contract by making equality of opportunity an explicit goal, strengthening their social security systems, and raising tax revenues to finance high-quality public education and health services.

El Estado Mundial de la Agricultura y la alimentación 2013
Autor: FAO
La malnutrición en todas sus formas ?la desnutrición, las carencias de micronutrientes y el sobrepeso y la obesidad? impone costos económicos y sociales inaceptablemente altos a los países de todos los niveles de ingresos. En el informe sobre El estado mundial de la agricultura y la alimentación 2013: sistemas alimentarios para una mejor nutrición se sostiene que para mejorar la nutrición y reducir estos costos debe comenzarse por la alimentación y la agricultura.
La función tradicional de la agricultura para la producción de alimentos y la generación de ingresos es fundamental, pero la agricultura y todo el sistema alimentario ?desde los insumos y la producción, pasando por la elaboración, el almacenamiento, el transporte y la venta al por menor, hasta el consumo? pueden contribuir en medida mucho mayor a la erradicación de la malnutrición.
El Problema de las Drogas en América
Autor: OEA
Analytical Report
presented in this volume synthesizes the studies ?
which are also published as annexes - carried out by high-level professionals dur
ing the second half of 2012. It is divided into 10 Chapters, starting with a defini
tion of the problem and an explanation of how it will be examined. The analysis
itself begins in Chapter 2 with a look at the reasons that led society to concern
itself with the use of certain substances and to decide to control them, in other words the effects of drugs on human health. Recognizing that this necessary choice triggered the illicit economic activity designed to satisfy the demand for banned substances, we devote Chapters 3, 4, 5, and 6 to a detailed study of how, in our region, controlled substances are cultivated, produced, distributed and sold. In undertaking that study, we examined the volume of activity, its various manifestations, its environmental impact, and the State?s response to it, including the consequences and limitations of that response.
