Overview

¿Quién o que es responsable por la pobreza que siempre afecta a una misma clase social, del atraso que continua plagando a América Latina y lo relega a una posición tercer mundista?

Esa es la pregunta que se plantea en el nuevo libro de los autores del bestseller Manual del perfecto idiota Latinoamericano, que como forma de respuesta, cita diversos casos de corrupción, por diferentes grupos en el poder y otros grupos de interés mundial.

Entre los implicados están gobiernos, tales como el de Peron en Argentina, el PRI en México y los Sandinistas en Nicaragua; sindicatos como la inflexible unión laboral que contribuye al desempleo, partidos políticos corruptos e ilegales, y agencias gubernamentales, como el sistema universitario que promueve disentimiento radical con la ideología contemporánea de corrupción y desperdicio que prevalece en la burocracia.

El autor también apunta a los empresarios mercantilistas que distorsionan el mercado con sus posiciones privilegiadas como monopolistas, quienes evalúan el costo indirecto que esta pagando la sociedad por el terrorismo y la guerrilla con el resultado económico de tener que financiar milicias para combatir las amenazas internas y externas.

Tres grandes autores crean un comentario provocador y controversial.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Those who create and sustain poverty in Latin America require a certain twisted talent and dubious diligence. The authors show, with substantial success, that the politicians, Roman Catholic clergy, labor leaders, military officers, and businessmen together produce and maintain impoverishment. Businessmen fear the free market and prefer the cozier framework of mercantilism; a professionalized officer corps keeps capable watch over dissidents; labor officials zealously guard a system that protects the incapable and discourages enterprise; the Catholic clergy marches in step with leftist intellectual attitudes throughout Latin America. The authors describe these mechanisms of control accurately and deftly, illustrating how self-serving practices and ideological justification work together to keep the continent poor. The authors offer no solutions; though they might well have mentioned the positive effect that evangelical Protestantism is having on literacy rates, work discipline, and more. A bit of light in a dark place? After reading this book we need to believe there is such a light.--John P. Farrance Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.

    Excelent points of view

    Plain and simple the roots of the problem is ETHIC. We need to see more good moral samples at all levels in Latin America. From Unions, to Elected officials they have to start by practicing what they preach. Good examples of rampant corruption and privileges reserved for a minority in control.

    Two thumbs up!

    This book discusses the 'poverty problem' in Latin America from an historical restrospective. I fully recommend it for everyone interested in economics or politics.
