This paper posits the need for a study in greater depth to identify the special features of the structurai heteroge* neity of the Latin American economies. Such a study is needed regardless of whether this phenomena is defined ultimately as the presence of marked inequalities in the productivity of labour between different sectors of the economy or whether the heterogeneity of the economies of Latin America is understood fundamentaliy as a significant relative lag of agriculture compared with other sectors of the economy.
