The Bolivia section of LASA (Latin American Studies Association), in coordination with the Ecuador and Peru sections, invites to the presentation and subsequent discussion of the book “Business Power and the State in the Central Andes” by John Crabtree, Francisco Durand, and Jonas Wolff. In their historical-comparative analysis, the authors examine how business actors have influenced the three states since the middle of the 20th century. While business actors in Peru have consistently been able to maintain a hegemony of power, social movements in Bolivia have been able to exert massive influence. In Ecuador, the balance of power between the two groups is more equal. The authors analyze the advantages of these different models, the reasons for their change, as well as the consequences for the states and the populations.
Dr Grace Jaramillo and Dr Maxwell Cameron will hold the presentation. The event will be in Spanish.
