The wave of market reform that swept across Latin America during the last fifteen years has produced profound changes in economic development policies and has therefore attracted considerable scholarly attention. Authors from diverse theoretical perspectives have shed light on their causes and consequences, emphasizing the severe crises that triggered structural adjustment; the coalitions of (prospective) winners that sustained neoliberal transformation; the demobilization of (prospective) losers that averted opposition; and the institutional powers and mechanisms that allowed reform-minded presidents to enact drastic change.
