France 0 - 0 Brésil. L'échec du réformisme
This paper compares the economic policies of the "left-wing" governements in France (1981-1986) and Brazil (2003-2007) and analyzes the causes, manifestations et consequences of the failure of these "reformisms". The originality of the French neoliberalism is to have been introduced by "socialist" leaders - the strategic turning point being probably taken as soon as the meeting of F. Mitterrand with R. Reagan and M. Thatcher in Versailles summit in June 1982. The Lula government did not diverge from the line of neoliberal reforms of its predecessors, and has even deepened it. In both cases, the peoples were thus maintained apart, as if one was afraid of them and reduced to a passive role of spectators of politics -like watching a scorer play. The result ? France 0 - 0 Brazil.
