Event: Luis Arce, "Bolivia's Economy: Challenges and Successes in the post-IMF era"

In the past two years, Bolivia has engaged in the re-nationalization of its natural resources, let its IMF agreement expire, and has now completed negotiations on a new Constitution. At the same time, a vocal minority of wealthy elites have objected to many of these changes - particularly to the attempted re-distribution of natural gas and oil revenues among various departments - and have made various secessionist demands upon on the federal government. Because of its status as poorest country in South America, its powerful social movements, and unique political scenario, the future of economic development and stability in Bolivia have larger implications for the region.
