WAINER, Andrés  and  BELLONI, Paula. Where is Latin America headed? Uneven development in the periphery in the globalization era. Cuad. Econ. [online]. 2016, vol.35, n.69, pp.555-581. ISSN 0121-4772.

The neoliberal hegemony of late last century has overshadowed Latin America's original theoretical approaches such as structuralism and dependency theory. Both neoliberal and "post-dependecy" approaches have postulated that national differences tend to disappear with globalization. This article argues another hypothesis: That instead of a "convergence" between Center and Periphery, a growing bifurcation of the Periphery is taking place. To test this hypothesis, we compare the performance of two regions: East Asia and Latin America.

Keywords : Uneven development; periphery; globalization; dependency.
