What the U.S. Electorate Might Learn from Latin AmericaPeace Review (2006)
AbstractThe article comments on key political conditions and movements in Latin America, citing issues on polarization, hegemony and opposition and how these developments may be applied by the United States Electorate. Evidently, both Latin America and the United States, commonly practice the commercialization of the electoral process accompanied by the professionalization and privatization of politics. Hegemonic governments and corporations collaborate to sell candidates for the elections. Faith-based elections have also emerged in both countries.
