In many cases the two causes 20 A Post Keynesian Perspective on 21st Century Economic Problems may come together. But my contention is that, in relation to the damaging policies just surveyed, the main reason why they were adopted was incompetence. In some cases the policies were severe, imposing sacrifices on the population and elites. Thus, they were not the result either of populism or pressure group action. They were the consequence of ignorance, fear, arrogance or a mixture of all these. As Whitehead (1997: 11) observes, over the past 20 years governments in Latin America have confronted extremely complex economic dilemmas, while ‘one of the features of both apolitical técnicos and the more politically empowered technocrats or technobureaucrats is that they tend to apply with great authority and self confidence, ideas they have derived at second-hand and without drawing on strong local tradition of theoretical elaboration and debate’.
They involved ignorance of the complexities of economic theory or unqualified application of abstract economic theory to Latin American economic problems. In saying that, I am not returning to the old argument that economic theory does not apply to developing countries. It does, as it applies to the developed countries. But it applies provided, in one case as in the other, that the theory is not applied automatically, is not transformed into a series of clichés, but is proficiently defined and implemented.
