Book Talk with Stephen Kaplan: Globalization and Austerity Politics in Latin America

, Abramson Family Founders Room, SIS Building

Updated 2/14/13

When is austerity imposed externally and when is it a domestic political choice?

He argues that a country's structural composition of international borrowing and its individual technocratic understanding of past economic crises combine to produce dramatically different outcomes in national policy choices.
