Werner Baer’s contributions to the analysis of Latin American economic development occupy a well deserved place in the economic literature dedicated to the region. But Werner is an unusual scholar. He has been not only an influential thinker and researcher, but also he has “engineered” one of the largest informal networks of scholars interested in Latin American Economics — encompassing generations of his students (including myself) and collaborators at Vanderbilt University, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the University of São Paulo, the Catholic Universities in Rio and Lima, etc. Accordingly, his impact on the debate of Latin America’s economic experience goes well beyond his writings.
