8604 - Crise do capitalismo global e seus impactos na América Latina

The aim of this paper is to perform a preliminary discussion of the international economic context and historical processes that have conditioned the relative structural setback in exports and production system from Latin America in the last two decades, to an insert in the region as an exporter of primary products in world economy. In the new context of capital accumulation on a global scale, East Asia, particularly China, appears as a new core dynamic of capitalism, while Latin America was unable to insert itself dynamically in the global economy. These changes are only fully intelligible if they are also taken into account the political, economic and social settings within each country, because the developmental trajectories also depend on economic policies, the national projects, the correlation of internal forces and geopolitical position. The starting point is the reflection of the structural crisis of capitalism in the 1970s. In response to the crisis of capitalism restructured. One aspect of this restructuring is the reconfiguration of the international division of labor, which struck a comprehensive system's periphery. In the decades that followed the crisis, there is the formation of a dynamic center of capital accumulation in East Asia, while much of the periphery faced strong instability and severe crises, marked by economic and social setbacks. This was the case in Latin America
