Crucial Needs, Weak Incentives: Social Sector Reform, Democratization, and Globalization in Latin America

Crucial Needs, Weak Incentives studies the politics of efforts to reform education and health services in Latin America in the 1990s.

Both sectors also have large numbers of unionized public employees, whose presence affects patronage as well as political power.
