This volume analyzes the macroeconomic events that took place in Bolivia between 1970 and 1995. In that time, the Bolivian economy moved from severe indebtedness and profound economic crisis to a period of economic stability and structural reform. It emphasizes the varying nature of sectoral adjustment behaviours, in response to shocks and policies, and the changes in policies to deal with external shocks over time. The structural reforms implemented after 1985 show the supreme effort the country has made to apply coherent economic policies after a long period of indebtedness and crisis.
