Scholars@Hallwalls: Latin American Development in a Neoliberal Age

 What has become of the development project since its core institutions—the World Bank and the IMF—faced a groundswell of opposition coming from Latin America and Asia at the turn of the millennium? This talk will explore this question through a discussion of recent development policies to promote export industries in the global South. Despite strong challenges to market rule and serial financial crises, development practitioners increasingly promote practices meant to administer competitiveness amongst workers and small producers through global market integration. Presentation by Marion Werner.
