Planning in Latin America

In this chapter an attempt is made to present a broad general picture of present day planning in Latin America. To that end planning agencies are described, their development plans are examined and some aspects of their execution are analysed. Firstly, on the basis of legal texts and practical experience, the organization of planning in each Latin American country is outlined. This is followed by a summary of plans already prepared, with special emphasis on their strategy, the rates of growth they postulate, investment requirements, financing and the balance of payments. Lastly, the execution of the plans is analysed briefly.
