States in the Global South are facing a double challenge of achieving socio-economic development while adapting to climate change impacts. This study maps to what extent Small Island Developing States (SIDS) manage to meet the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SIDS are at the front line of climate change and while they share numerous challe...

This paper investigates why economic shrinking episodes in Latin America and the Caribbean have declined since the 1970s. Following recent literature on long-term growth, we propose that the reduced frequency and rate of shrinking might reveal the dynamic transition from a natural state to an open-access society. Empirical support is derived from t...

Full-text available
Economic history has recently emphasised the impact of economic shrinking on long-term economic growth, but economic theories do not provide explanations for how and why some countries avoid economic shrinking. In this case study of institutional change in post-independence Indonesia, we examine how the country managed to reduce the frequency of sh...

Qué causó la disminución de la pobreza en Brasil durante la primera década del siglo 21 es la pregunta principal en este estudio. Nuestra contribución radica en incorporar una pers­pectiva de cambio estructural para evaluar la evolución de la pobreza en un contexto de altos precios en la agricultura y decentralización de la política social a nivel...
Article
Full-text available
Domestic social capabilities are a set of national characteristics for understanding why some countries grow faster than others. Yet there is no clear agreement on the main characteristics of these capabilities and therefore they have been neglected in the income convergence debate. The paper presents an index for revisiting the role of social capa...
Chapter
Since 1968, Indonesia has been among the few developing countries able to sustain per capita income growth over 5 per cent. However, poverty and surplus labour are still the main features of the economy. Chapter 11 asks to what extent the dual nature of growth has stimulated structural change—or has it just rewarded a particular sector or region? W...
Article
Full-text available
While the income per capita in the developing world since the turn of the Millennium has grown faster than that of the developed world, the question whether there is an ongoing process of catching up between countries remains. The notion of income convergence has provided many insights into the sources for long-run growth but has largely neglected...

One oft-noted observation of the twentieth-century economic history of Latin America in general and of the import-substitution industrialization strategy (ISI) in particular is the neglect of agriculture and the related structural heterogeneity (Baer 1972; Kay 2002; Bertola and Ocampo 2012). In Latin America, the transformation of agriculture has n...

Objective(s): Colombia has the third largest black population in the Americas after Brazil and the USA. In 2005 mortality rate under 5 in Colombia was 21.5 per 1000, with a reduction of 82% between 2005 and 1955. That rate is not in line with rates for Cuba (6.8), Chile (9.1) or Costa Rica (10.4). Here we aim to provide evidence that a further red...

Structural change consists of the long-term changes in the sectoral composition of output and employment. We introduce a structural change perspective to the study of income inequality in 27 countries of the developing world for the period 1960-2010. The service sector has become the main employer, but the agricultural sector is central to the inco...

Project
Small Island Developing States (SIDS) share development challenges such as: small and often low skilled populations; geographic remoteness; limited natural resources; susceptibility to natural disasters and extreme weather; and high dependence on international trade and aid. They have reduced opportunities to improve living standards and embark on paths of sustained economic growth and institutional development. The project aim is to investigate the historical underpinnings of the current transformative capacity of SIDS as well as their potential transformation pathways in to the future.
