I am happy to announce that the Latin American Centre at the University of Oxford is launching a new working papers series in political economy. Supported by CAF-Development Bank of Latin America, the working papers aim to publish high quality research on political economy and economic issues that deal with the region. This will include the annual working paper from the CAF Visiting Fellow. You can find the new webpage here.
I am particularly happy because the first paper we publish has been written by Jorge Katz, formerly at ECLAC and now at the University of Chile. Jorge is not only one of the best specialists on innovation in Latin America, but also a great teacher and colleague. In this paper, he elaborates a great critical account of growth theories with examples from the region.
