Post-Neoliberalism and Financial Liberalization:
Comparing Inclusionary and Exclusionary Populism
This research compares how the ideological underpinnings of post-neoliberalism have shaped the evolution of external financial liberalization in prototypical cases of inclusionary and exclusionary populism: Argentina under Kirchnerism (2003–15) and Hungary under Viktor Orbán (since 2010). Specifically, this comparative case study shows that both post-neoliberal experiences led to a partial reversal of financial openness, while they differed in their choice of restricting capital mobility or foreign ownership in the banking sector.
