AMLO, ¿socialista del siglo XXI?

February 20, 2020

El triunfo electoral de Andrés Manuel López Obrador, el primer presidente de izquierda en la historia de la democracia mexicana, ha canalizado, por lo menos hasta ahora, una buena parte del descontento que en el resto de América Latina han generado las deudas políticas y sociales acumuladas tanto por la era neoliberal como por los límites y contradicciones de los regímenes bolivarianos. Este descontento se ha manifestado visiblemente mediante la reciente ola de protestas, movilizaciones y estallidos sociales que han marcado la vida política de la región durante el último año.
