Privatization in Latin America represents the first systemic economic analysis of the efficiency and distributive effect of privatization in Latin America. Examining the privatization experience of six Latin American countries-Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, and on in Latin America evaluates the empirical evidence on privatization and assesses the validity of the criticisms raised.

Alberto Chong, Florencio López-de-Silanes. This book provides strong scientific evidence that privatization has been beneficial for many Latin American countries, although some privatizations failed and some groups in society lost out. As usual, the devil is in the details: how privatization is carried out and what reforms accompany it are crucial to its success. The book is definitely an invaluable contribution to the privatization debate. -Oliver Hart, Andrew E. Furer Professor of Economics, Harvard University.

Privatization is under attack. Beginning in the 1980s, thousands of failing state-owned enterprises worldwide have been turned over to the private sector. But public opinion has turned against privatization. A large political backlash has been brewing for some time, infused by accusations of corruption, abuse of market power, and neglect of the poor. What is the real record of privatization and are the criticisms justified?'Privatization in Latin America' evaluates the empirical evidence on privatization in a region that has witnessed an extensive decline in the state's share of production over the past 20 years. The book is a compilation of recent studies that provide a comprehensive analysis of the record of and accusations against privatization, with important recommendations for the future. Seven countries are investigated: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, and Peru. This book will be vital to anyone interested in the privatization debate but especially to those involved in civil service reform, corporate governance, economic policy, finance, and anticorruption efforts.'Privatization is important but controversial. While economists typically favor it, others are skeptical. This book provides strong scientific evidence that privatization has been beneficial for many Latin American countries, although some privatizations failed and some groups in society lost out. As usual, the devil is in the details: how privatization is carried out and what reforms accompany it are crucial to its success. The book is definitely an invaluable contribution to the privatization debate.'--Oliver Hart, Andrew E. Furer Professor of Economics, Harvard University

For those who like full empirical studies of statistics and econometrics, I recommend read this book. Written and edited by Alberto Chong, an economist by Cornell and Harvard Universities and former Finance Minister of Peru, it presents a compilation of studies by several renowned economists, offering a detailed analysis of the history of privatizations in seven countries in Latin America. A major difficulty to the authors was precisely to find a good database, since many states enterprises have lack of public information and open records. Brazil was one of those who refused to provide the data requested by the authors. The researchers couldn't get all information of states that do not have publicly traded on a stock exchange.

If anyone has any doubts about the overwhelming benefits of privatization in Latin America, they should read this book. As politicians like Kirchner, Morales and Chavez to a certain degree argue against what they see as the social cost of privatization, this book clearly shows that if the goal is to have increased state revenues aimed at social spending, privatization will more likely than nationalization bring that about through increased tax revenues (private companies in general pay more taxes than state companies), sustained job creation and reduced liabilities such as public debt accumulated by inefficient money-losing state companies.

The authors and editors deserve praise for having produced a well-written book on the topic, with ample documentation and no political agenda beyond looking at the myths and reality of privatization in Latin America.
