In this article, a synthetic reflection is made on how Latin America faced the “challenges of economic development” between 1959 and 1989 in a few decades framed in the political and social scenario of revolutions, dictatorships and democracies. The focus of the work is on how different economic policies were implemented within the framework of a changing political scenario in each decade.
