Latin America: Left in a predicament

The coming to power of Hugo Chavez in Venezuela in 1998 marked a turning point in Latin American political history. The first camel quickly turned into a huge wave, which spread to almost the entire subcontinent.

Twenty years of left-wing government, redistribution policies targeting the poor, thanks to the export of raw materials, drastically reducing poverty rates and improving health and education infrastructure.

In the mid-2010s, however, this did not stop the Left from falling in favor of a liberal, or as completely pro-fascist and dictatorial as it was in Brazil.

He has published at least two books on the subject: Progressive Governments in Latin America, The End of the Golden Age, Published in editions of the University Press of France and Is the game over? Latin America: Progressive experiences are disabled, Published by Silisp editions.
