I’m attempting to develop an understanding of the origins of neoliberalism sensitive to the forms of political, economic, and “ethnic” practice it has drawn from, transformed, and produced. I'm focusing on the interaction between urbanization, a growing informal economy, and the promotion of microfinance, on the one hand, and the progressive growth in influence of a conservative fringe of the political establishment, on the other, in Lima, Peru during the course of the late 20th century. In another project, Laura Enríquez and I are researching conflicts internal to the Venezuelan state, between the myriad new agencies the Chávez government has instituted and the previously-extant bureaucracies. Focusing on the agrarian transformation that the state has expressly sought, we focus on intra-state conflicts both at the inter-bureau level and at the level of implementation.
