The legacy of Latin America's so-called era of market reforms in the 1990s is a divided region. Some countries have embraced centralized economic and political control, while others are rejecting populism in favor of market democracy. Internal divisions in various countries are as pronounced. The International Foundation for Liberty, an organization of market liberals in the Americas and Spain, is bringing together leading thinkers and policymakers to assess the reach and limits of Latin American populism, highlight policy successes in the region, and outline an agenda for a modern Latin America.
