#7 The International Political Economy of Democracy, the 1980s to the Present

He points out in his opening passages that this chapter is more about politics than economics.

This is mainly because economic issues became hostage to political ones although, ironically, the political issues were all rooted in long-standing economic issues.

My objective in reviewing this chapter will be to lay out the threads of the political developments yet emphasize the economic fallout.

In many ways the 1980s saw a confluence of internal contradictions in the context of the external Cold War build to a climax; spilling onto the national stage of most Central American nations.

Consequently, the 1990s were a time of war-weariness, national healing and conciliation. This was also the time when nations reinforced this institutions of democracy and laid plans for their economic futures in early the 21st century.
