Nuevo artículo del investigador Eduardo Dargent

Ya se encuentra disponible el artículo "Populists and Technocrats in Latin America: Conflict, Cohabitation, and Cooperation", del investigador CISEPA Eduardo Dargent, junto al investigador Rodrigo Barrenechea, publicado en el journal Politics and Governance .


The literature frequently presents populists and technocrats as antagonistic. Although undoubtedly there are good historical examples that confirm this tension, in this article we propose that the relations between economic technocrats and populists are less conflictive than usually assumed and cohabitation a more common outcome than expected. We argue that two conditions moderate conflict between populists and economic technocrats, leading not only to their cohabitation but to cooperation between them: the programmatic mandate of populists and the economic context of their rise to power. We analyse the relations of economic experts with nine populist presidents in contemporary Latin America to show this argument’s soundness.
