The Friedrich-Ebert-­Stiftung (FES Bolivia) and Plural Editores are inviting to the presen­tation of the book: Estado y poder empre­sarial en Bolivia, Ecuador y Perú.

In this book, John Crabtree, Francisco Durand and Jonas Wolff inves­tigate the political role of economic elites in Bolivia, Ecuador and Peru from a comparative-­historical perspective. Drawing on theo­ries of corporate power and state capture, the study traces the inter­action of business groups and state autho­rities in the three countries of the central Andean region from the mid-twen­tieth century to the early twenty-first century. This span covers three models of eco­nomic develop­ment characterised by different configurations of corporate power and state-­business relations: the period of the state-centric model of import-sub­stitution indus­trialisation from the 1950s to the 1970s, the rise of neoliberalism in the 1980s and 1990s, and the shift towards a post-neo­liberal model with the "pink tide" of the early 2000s. The book also dis­cusses recent develop­ments in the three countries since the Covid-19 pan­demic, including recent political turbu­lence.
