The presidential elections in Brazil and Argentina in 2002 and 2003, respectively, were presented as appropriated political moments to implement changes. The electoral programs of the candidates who would later win the elections (especially in Argentina) were promising to break the crises and problems caused by triumphant neo-liberalism of the Consensus of Washington. So, with Kirchner's period already finished and after a longer period of Lula, it seems necessary to evaluatethegovernmentalactionsof bothpresidents.Weinsisthereonregionalintegrationmatters. After the Summit in Mar del Plata in December 2005, the Summit in Cordoba in July 2006 and the incorporation of Venezuela as a Mercosur's full member, the regional integration and the model of development raise new question on the topic at hand. Which will be the balance of the forces between the diverse economic and political actors in the new configuration of the Mercosur? Which is the future of the Banco del Sur? It will just replace the international institutions(IMF,WB,IADB)already discredited by the crises or it will be a driving force for a new economic and social development, with structural and social homogeneity as its political priority?
