Peru stands out among Latin American countries as an example of successful economic reforms over the past decade. This comprehensive look at Peru's economy traces that country's journey from a debt crisis in the 1980s to having buffers in place that allowed it to emerge unscathed from the global financial crisis. The book examines the steps Peru undertook to achieve these results and extracts lessons to be learned. Chapters are written by IMF staff and Peruvian economists.

Review quote

"An impressive economic story, this book goes through the transformation of Peru from a case study of instability and bad policies in the 1980s to one of the most successful emerging market economies in the twenty-first century. The IMF should feel proud to have accompanied such a successful experience through extensive technical assistance, focused surveillance, and continued financial support in the context of well-designed economic programs." - Michel Camdessus, former managing Director of the IMF
