De la Volatilité Macro-économique à la Vulnérabilité Sociale: Le Cas du Mercosur. Une Critique du Régionalisme Ouvert

Abstract : In Latin America, ten years after its creation, Mercosur has suffered poor and even negative results in terms of growth stability and trade. However, this study does not question the economic integration itself but rather the characteristic of this specific regionalism type applied in Latin America known as Open Regionalism. It is supposed to guarantee better stability for the region in crisis time. The notion of demercosurisation is introduced in order to explain the deactivation of its regional safety net during economic turmoil. The notion presented by the CEPAL of Open Regionalism in favour of Productive Transformation with Equity and its theoretic bases rooted in the new international trade theories (endogenous growth and new geographic economy) are discussed in the First Part of this work. The pertinence of the regional integration process as a stabilisation and growth factor loses ground (Second Part). The historic-structural approach which is applied in our study urges the simultaneous analysis of both growth regime and equity focusing on structural and social homogeneity (Third Part). The conclusions define the main characteristics of a Latin American productive restructuring with social homogeneity as a viable and sustainable alternative to FTAA.
