Between extractivism and living well:experiences and challanges en limits

Fernanda Wanderley in Chapter 6 focuses on the tensions between extractivism and Good Living in Bolivia. A creative vision of development vindicated the strengthening of the various kings of community governance, of pluralist principles of state organization and a new development paradigm. This chapter aims to reconstruct the Bolivian experience following ten years of the Movement Towards Socialism (MAS) government in that country. In the first section, we examine the path of the social movements that generated the political energy for another economy and other development and which, later, were channelled by the party of President Evo Morales, who came to power in 2006. We then analyze the key political, social and economic transformations of the past ten years. The third section identifies the development model that was effectively implemented through a study of public policies and their outcomes. In the fourth section, two important events are discussed, which marked a turning point in the process of change and the political arena of the social movements scarred by fragmentation and internal conflict. An analysis of the Bolivian case from a comparative perspective allows, in the final analysis, for the identification of the main contradictions and foretells the challenges facing new progressive political projects in the region
