This Publication Analyzes economic developments in Latin America in 1981. It examines the evolution of the economy in each of the countries in the region : economic growth, employment and unemployment, the external sector, prices and wages.




In 1981 the Mexican economy registered a high rate of growth (a little over 8%) for the fourth consecutive year. This meant that the per capita product increased 23% over this period and there was a continued reduction in unemployment and underemployment, which have traditionally constituted one of the country's most serious problems. This performance is even more heartening if consideration is given to the conditions experienced by nearly all the industrialized economies, which perceptibly affected the growth rate of most of the Latin American countries.
