Raúl Prebisch: Power, Principle and the Ethics of Development
Essays in honor of David H. Pollock, marking the centennial celebrations of the birth of Raúl Prebisch
(Edited by Edgar J. Dosman)

"...when exposed to Prebisch...D. H. Pollock...was unable to resist his gravitational pull, and he eagerly became part of the exceptional group of young economists in the first ECLAC team. At that time, Washington was gripped by Cold War anti-communist hysteria; Prebisch developmentalism was suspect. The challenge of managing the relationship with the United States (US) deepened when Republican Administrations were elected in 1952 and 1956. Pollock's task was to represent ECLAC in Washington: to present the actual policies and projects of Santiago, to confront myth-making and willfull distortion of fact, and to be Prebisch's eyes and ears in heading off potential disputes which constantly threatened to undermine US-ECLAC relations during the 1950s...". (Edgar J. Dosman).
" is difficult to describe or interpret the economic history of Latin America without reference to the enormous contribution of Raúl Prebisch. He stands astride the region as a giant of thought and action, and the footprint of his legacy continues to be unmistakably relevant in the current debates regarding the future directions of Latin American economic development and international governance... Always controversial, at times vilified, Prebisch's work has withstood the ebb and flow of fashion in development theory even as his unflagging dedication to improving the prevailing imbalance among nations and people remains an ETHICAL BENCHMARK...".( Enrique V. Iglesias).

Raúl Prebisch: el poder, los principios y la ética del desarrollo
Ensayos en honor de David H. Pollock por la celebración de los 100 años del nacimiento de Raúl Prebisch

"Es difícil describir o interpretar la historia económica de América Latina sin hacer referencia a la enorme contribución de Raúl Prebisch. Su figura se proyecta a través de la región como la de un gigante en pensamiento y acción. Las huellas de su legado continuan siendo indudablemente relevantes en las actuales discusiones sobre América Latina en relación a los futuros redireccionamientos de su desarrollo económico y gobierno internacional. La siempre controvertida y a veces vilipendiada obra de Prebisch ha resistido las idas y venidas de la moda en la teoría del desarrollo, en tanto que la dedicación incansable de su autor, orientada a mejorar el desequilibrio preponderante entre las naciones y los pueblos, perdura como un hito de la ética." Enrique V. Iglesias
