Go here for a report by Marcelo Ballvé on Bolivia, published in World Politics Review, that does a far better job than most of looking into the nuances of the country’s political and economic policies. Why does the Evo Morales government have a hard-left reputation but also controls its economy in a way that has the ratings agencies raising their credit ratings and purring with approval? This is a question normally left untouched by English language reports but tackled by Ballvé, who includes an interview with Bolivia’s FinMin Arce as well.
A good article and one that will help you understand the mix that is today’s Bolivia. Go read it.
