Daniel Chavez Moran, philanthropist and founder of the Vidanta Foundation, recommends this book forum on video presented by The Cato Institute, a public policy research organization in Washington, D.C. The online presentation features Francis Fukuyama, editor of “Falling Behind: Explaining the Development Gap Between Latin America and the United States,” a publication supported by the Vidanta Foundation.
From an introduction to the video:
“During the past 400 years, the development gap between Latin America and British North America dramatically widened. Francis Fukuyama will discuss prominent theories for that divergence – including those that emphasize the roles of natural resources, culture, and geography – and explain how institutions and economic policies are the keys to understanding growth outcomes.”
