The political defeat of neoliberalism in Argentina and the Brazilian future

A vitória de Alberto Fernández e Cristina Kirchner nas eleições presidenciais da Argentina representou um enorme golpe para os movimentos de centro-direita na América Latina. Entre os muitos artigos jornalísticos da imprensa local e de análises especializadas internacionais que circulam desde as eleições primárias na Argentina – em agosto passado e que indicavam uma inevitável derrota de Macri – há um consenso em torno do fracasso econômico do seu governo, sobretudo pela aumento da inflação e endividamento público.

The failure of Macri's economic neoliberalism occurred although he ...

Estudo: Myanmar (Birmânia)
