Example text

They (correctly) distinguish between corporate capitalism, which they oppose, and small-scale production in the private sector, which they support. They include certain sectors of organized labour but are predominantly made up of proletarianized and semi-proletarianized rural landless or near-landless workers, or smalllandholding family farmers and peasants concerned for their livelihoods based on access to land, and indigenous communities concerned to protect their territorial rights to water and the land, and to secure their freedom from both exploitation and the degradation of the environment as well as their relationship to nature.

Another possible explanation of the resource curse is that primary commodity exports have a negative impact on the exchange rate vis-à-vis the export of products in other sectors of the economy—an impact described as the ‘Dutch disease’. An example would be the dilemma faced by the current government of Brazil. Until 2010 Brazil was a major destination of industryfocused fdi—and one of the ‘emerging’ markets’ (together with China, India and Russia) driving the world market in terms of the pent-up demand of the growing world middle class).

These political costs derive from and relate to a continuing reliance and dependence of the governments on fdi, which explains the evident propensity of these governments, even in the case of those with a nationalist orientation and a post-neoliberal progressive policy stance, to side with capital against the communities and the social movements in the conflict generated in the extraction process. Examples here can be found in Argentina and Peru, cases of more moderate and pragmatic post-neoliberalism, but also Bolivia and Ecuador, which have adopted a more radical nationalist or populist stance.
