This paper relies heavily on three others: "Lost Decades: Lessons from Post-Independence Latin America," Journal of Economic History (December 2007), written with R. Bates and J. Coatsworth; "Ancient Inequality," Economic Journal (forthcoming 2010), written with B. Milanovic and P. H. Lindert; and "Five Centuries of Latin American Inequality," Revista de Historia Económica (forthcoming 2010). I am grateful to Bob Bates, John Coatsworth, Peter Lindert and Branko Milanovic for allowing me to use our joint work here. I also acknowledge the many useful comments received when this paper was given at the ECLAC Seminar (Santiago, November 9, 2009), especially those of André Hofman.
