Resumo

In two decades, a process of democratization occurred in Latin America, leading to
new public policies that have helped reduce inequality and poverty. Government programs had
been set up for that purpose, in a first stage through conditional cash transfer programs, and in
a second stage through income policies to wage adjustment. Not all the countries followed these
policies, therefore, the paper explores in a counterfactual analysis, the trends that have emerged
from these reforms and how they have reshaped the welfare systems of Brazil, Argentina, Chile,
Colombia and Mexico.
