Description: This book provides a theory and evidence to explain the initial
decision of governments to adopt a conditional cash transfer
program (the most prominent type of antipoverty program currently
in operation in Latin America), and whether such programs are
insulated from political manipulations or not. Ana Lorena De La O
shows that whether presidents limit their own discretion or not has
consequences for the survival of policies, their manipulation, and
how effective they are in improving the lives of the poor. This
book is the first of its kind to present evidence from all Latin
American CCTs.
