Die hegemoniale Krise und die Krise der Linken in Lateinamerika
Schlagworte:Hegemonie, Krise, Linke, Lateinamerika
Since the economic crises of 1994 in Mexico, 1999 in Brazil, and 2001 in Argentina, the neoliberal model has been loosing its legitimacy all over Latin America. Being confronted with massive popular protests, more than ten governments have had to step down in the last couple of years. But so far, the Latin American left has not been able to come up with an alternative project, which could effectively challenge the neoliberal hegemony. In fact, the recently elected left governments of Lula in Brazil and Tabaré Vazquez in Uruguay continue their predecessors' politics of fiscal adjustment. The article discusses the origins, strengths, and weaknesses of neoliberal hegemony in Latin America, and the future perspectives for a strong antineoliberal movement.
