Bird's-eye view of trends in the 1960s

In comparative and over-all terms, the rate of expansion of the Latin American economy during the 1960s slightly exceeded the figure for the preceding decade and was about the same as that of the world economy, although not so high as those of more dynamic regions and countries. At this level, then, trends were not unfavourable; but they cannot be properly appraised without taking into account structure and social implications of growth, as will be shown in subsequent sections.
