Abstract

The aim of this chapter is to analyse the forces behind ecconomic inequality in Latin America and their connection to the processes of financialisation. The key motivation is that Latin America is one of the most unequal regions of the world. Simultaneously, Latin American economies have undergone substantial changes in the course of financialisation (Correa & Vidal 2012:542), which have compromised the performance of the productive sector (Levy-Orlik 2013:110).
