Abstract and Keywords

The development of social security systems in Latin America has been, both historically and by country, strongly influenced by different views of the role of government. This chapter reviews the history of social security in the Latin American region and the failure of market reforms to improve their performance, analysing their outreach in different specific contexts and providing a profile of the new generation of reforms. It ends with a series of recommendations, with particular reference to health care, retirement income, and unemployment benefits.

Keywords: economic performance, Latin America, health care, retirement income, unemployment benefits
