Volume 63 / Social Sciences

ECONOMICS: PARAGUAY

MELISSA H. BIRCH, Associate Professor and Director, Center for International Business Education and Research, University of Kansas

THERE CONTINUES TO BE ONLY A SMALL NUMBER of important volumes on the Paraguayan economy, but there is a significant increase in the quality of recent works. A series of economic analyses (items #bi2007004273#, #bi2006000726#, and #bi2007004272#) produces convincing results that should inform policy-making in Paraguay. A World Bank study provides data to document the extent of poverty in Paraguay and reinforces the need for policy action (item #bi2007004269#). A study of privatization in Paraguay adds to this growing body of serious policy analysis (item #bi2005003640#) and a small volume on railroads (item #bi2006000728#) makes a valuable contribution on an important and under-researched topic in Paraguay. Studies based on experimental economics using Paraguayan populations give additional rigor to the overall portfolio of economic studies (items #bi2007004271# and #bi2007004270#).
