People, Jobs and Economic Development: A Case History of Puerto Rico Supplemented by Recent Mexican Experiences

Excerpt

Essentially we wish to extract from the Puerto Rican experiences, such findings and information as may be relevant and helpful to other underdeveloped parts of the world which have embarked on programs of economic and social development. Since the entire process of economic development and social change is too large for this one study to encompass, we have limited ourselves in large measure to analysis of the demographic, working force and employment aspects.

By "other areas embarking on programs of economic development" we have in mind countries that are at least partially developed, and more or less reasonably comparable to Puerto Rico. Most of Latin America, parts of Europe, probably the Middle East, and at least some countries of Asia and Africa, it is felt, are in this category. Whether or not these Puerto Rican experiences which are reviewed here are relevant for countries at the very beginning of economic growth, as Nepal or Liberia, for example, we do not know. Not having made detailed study of all the countries of the world we are not prepared to list the "other areas" for which our analysis should have the most relevance.
