San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Stephen Kaplan discusses his latest publication, Globalization and Austerity Politics in Latin America.
"In an age of financial globalization, are markets and democracy compatible? When is austerity imposed externally and when is it a domestic political choice? Globalization and Austerity Politics in Latin America investigates how relations between international creditors and national debtors affect economic policy choices. The book also evaluates the role of technocratic advisors on government choices, showing how severe economic shocks have a transformative effect on policy. Beyond Latin America’s borders, the book offers important lessons for understanding the ongoing economic crises in the U.S. and Europe, as well as the politics of reform in developing democracies."
