When is austerity imposed externally and when is it a domestic political choice? By combining statistical tests with extensive field research across Latin America, Kaplan examines the effect of financial globalization on economic policymaking. 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.
