Sevares, Julio. Por que cayó la Argentina. Imposición, crisis y reciclaje del orden neoliberal en la Argentina. Buenos Aires, Argentina, 2002

Jul 07, 2011
Tan ameno y cautivante como una novela policial, este libro de Julio Sevares se lee de un trago; aunque éste tenga sabor amargo. Es que en la Argentina se ha cometido un crimen, pero no en el estilo de las novelas clásicas de Agatha Christie sino en el más descarnado de las historias negras de Hammett y Chandler. En este caso, no es un individuo sino un país el que yace agonizante y desangrado, y es una oscura conspiración de intereses, propios y ajenos, la que ha apretado el gatillo de su desgracia." Asi presenta Mario Rapoport este libro indispensable para entender la situación actual del país. Julio Sevares explica la crisis que atraviesan los argentinos como producto del orden neoliberal que rige en el país desde 1975. Si algo revela el recorrido de más de un cuarto de siglo de política económica es que el bloque dominante, compuesto por las cúpulas empresaria, política, militar y, en buena medida, sindical, ha logrado sostener a través de los años, con gobiernos civiles o militares, con tipo de cambio fijo o variable, un sistema basado en la acumulación de rentas, la apropiación de bienes públicos, la especulación y la distribución regresiva del ingreso. Con absoluto rigor y claridad, Sevares hace entendible una realidad que muchos han querido ocultar. Por qué cayó la Argentina es por ello un estudio vital para la reflexión sobre el futuro de la Argentina. more
