Latin America’s Crisis: The End of the Commodity Super-Cycle, or the Return of Neoliberalism?

"Professor Vernengo will offer a public lecture and discussion of the recent slowdown in economic growth. The talk will consider the degree to which these events reflect the fall in primary commodity prices, particularly oil, or are instead the result of a return to neoliberal policy prescriptions.
