Chapter Summary

Argentina became immersed in a neoliberal economic model that led to an economic and political crisis, resulting in the removal of four consecutive presidents over a three month period. This chapter particularly focuses on the experience and transformation of workers in Argentina as they took over bankrupt factories and put them back into production. It presents a brief analysis of the economic and social crisis in Argentina, followed by a description of the varied social reactions over the last decade of the twentieth century. The chapter points to novel characteristics of social mobilization that differ from more traditional forms. After a succinct description of the enterprise recuperation process, the chapter argues that the new relations described were a result of social practices more than a consequence of ideology. The chapter also reflects on what may happen with this new left in the context of a retreat of social mobilization.

Keywords: Argentina; neoliberal policies; new social movements; resurrected enterprises
