About this event

Just when even the strongest last bastions of neoliberalism, the US and the UK, have been forced by populist revolt to question at least some elements of neoliberal wisdom, Argentina has elected the most ideologically extreme neoliberal government. This webinar discusses key questions: What explains Milei’s election? What are his policies, exactly? Where will they lead Argentina? What does this mean for Latin America as a whole?
