New book by Professor Sánchez-Ancochea

6 January 2021

Professor Diego Sánchez-Ancochea (Professor of the Political Economy of Development) has written The Costs of Inequality in Latin America: Lessons and Warnings for the Rest of the World​, published in late 2020 by IB Tauris. As the publisher describes: 'The Costs of Inequality draws on the experience of Latin America, one of the most unequal regions of the world, to demonstrate how inequality has hampered economic growth, contributed to a lack of good jobs, weakened democracy, and led to social divisions and mistrust.'

Dr Néstor Castañeda, of University College London, has described it as 'an excellent work on the complexities of inequality in Latin America and the lessons we can learn from ideas, social movements, and policies developed in middle income countries to reduce income and wealth inequality.'
