Book Chapter

This chapter on labour markets and growth in Peru since 2000 is one of sixteen studies of Latin American countries, each of which analyses the growth– employment–poverty nexus and aims to answer the following broad questions: Has economic growth resulted in economic development via improved labour market conditions in Latin America in the 2000s, and have these improvements halted or been reversed since the Great Recession? How do the rate and character of economic growth, changes in the various labour market indicators, and changes in poverty relate to each other?
