The Political Economy of Latin America, welfare and foreign investment: Distributive models in Chile and Uruguay (2000-2018)
This project aims to investigate the effects of foreign investment on the creation of distributive policies in Chile and Uruguay between 2000 and 2018. It is argued that the foreign investment received by both countries constrain the possibilities of distributive development due to two effects. First, the type and sector in which the investment is allocated, demand low-skilled, low-educated and low-wage workers, that accentuates the lack of incorporation into value chains. Second, the amount and type of investment increases the concentration of wealth, which provides vast lobbying power to the business elites over the structures of the State.
