Governability and Democracy in Latin America
The first part of this article explores the meaning of democracy and citizenship, and their tortured relationship to the structures of domination inherent in capitalist societies. The second provides antecedents to the impact of the recession and the liberal-inspired adjustments to the conditions of life of the popular classes and strata in Latin America. In the third part, the empirical validity and logical soundness of some of the central proposals of neoliberal orthodoxy are formulated and appraised. The fourth part contains reflections on the form of civil society that results from the neoliberal deluge.
