Is the ‘Progressive Cycle’ Over in Latin America?

Eric Draitser of gives a talk at Left Forum in NYC (May 22, 2016) to answer the question of whether the “progressive cycle” is over in Latin America. Draitser argues that political observers and leftists should separate the leftist governments of Latin America from the ideological orientation of the masses of working and poor people in the region. He provides examples of how Wall Street and neoliberal finance capital have reasserted their control over Latin America, but are unable to divorce the people from their commitment to socialism and anti-imperialism. Lots of information and analysis presented in this roughly 20 minute presentation.
