Book Talk with Stephen Kaplan: Globalization and Austerity Politics in Latin America (Updated 2/14)
11:00 am – noon, Wednesday, February 27, Abramson Family Founders Room, SIS Building
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.
