O Legado de Lula: A Esquerda Neoliberal

Confira aqui o excelente artigo de James Petras sobre a dupla personalidade do governo Lula, representante legítimo da nova esquerda neoliberal na América Latina e responsável direto pela des-radicalização social no Brasil. Este artigo é uma das melhores análises críticas já escritas sobre a situação político-econômica brasileira neste início de século XIX. Leitura obrigatória!

“Lula was eminently successful in securing tens of millions of dollars in contributions from the economic elite for his services on their behalf .In fact most of the really wealthy contribute to both major parties. Lula’s legacy is that he has de-radicalized Brazilian politics, leading to a consensus over the centrality of free markets, free trade and state promoted big business as the bases of economic policy. Beyond that Lula has enshrined the principle of poverty subsidies in place of social structural changes as the centerpiece of social policy”
