The effects of the 2020 pandemic on the Latin-American region: a thorough before-after analysis. From a deep dependency on an extractive export oriented accumulation based on expropriation and privatization of the commons and of public investment to a markets' financialization of foreign wealth; what follows a global pandemic alongside a huge loss/out-flow of money is hard pressure on states' balance-sheets, liquidation, deprecation of local currencies, risk of defaults. It looks bleak but once again, solutions and decisions are there to be taken.


Comment from our editors:

A good regional analysis for an aware post-pandemic decision-making policy.
