Sinopse

There is a widespread perception that sector policies in developing countries have become increasingly dependent on the courses set by multilateral and bilateral aid agencies, of which the World Bank is perhaps the most influential one. To test this perception, this book examines the urban agenda promoted by the World Bank in Latin America during the 1980s and 1990s and whether it has influenced urban and housing sector policies in Argentina and Mexico. While both countries undertook reform programs that closely followed the prescriptions of the so-called 'Washington Consensus,' Argentina's narrow focus on macroeconomic performance and Mexico's sustained emphasis on social considerations and poverty alleviation are clearly reflected in the urban development projects financed by the World Bank in each country. The results point to the ability of national governments to affect the sector policies sponsored by international financial institutions, including those of the World Bank.
