The Slow Change of Democracy

Renowned constitutional scholar, Sujit Choudhry, says the idea of democracy has evolved much all over the world since the Cold War. He says one great example of this is Poland’s Law and Justice Party. Since this party was voted by the public into office in 2015, it has focused almost exclusively on undermining and redefining democracy in Poland to the end of eliminating any efforts to do away with their ruling power (releasefact.com). They did this by first completely changing the country’s Constitutional Court. They remade the court’s constitution of panels, redefined voting procedure, revolutionized the assignment of judges to cases, and many other related matters. In essence, they have since been taking steps to an entire overhaul of the Polish democratic system.

This is just one example of democracy being drastically tampered with through recent decades. These are not things happening naturally but are being done through underhanded manipulations by the ruling governments for their own ends. We are seeing democracy used by undemocratic regimes to get themselves in power so that they can then undermine and change this democratic system from within and thus make good their own ends. These regimes are successfully getting into power because they are also successfully tricking the populace into thinking they are actually democratic.

The collapse of democracy in this way, says Choudhry, is bringing authoritarianism closer and closer to many countries. He points back to the Polish government as an example. Although it is making a much slower motion, the American government is also making this slide, albeit it extremely slowly. One reason why our ideas are becoming easier to change these days is that more and more it is becoming the case that we live in an environment where there are no right or wrong answers. However, governmental bodies are not the only ones producing these changes. The media is also at fault.  For an interesting interview of Sujit, click iconnectblog.com.

Felipe Montoro Jens Reports on IDB’s Stance on Private Investments For Latin America

Felipe Montoro Jens, an Infrastructure Projects Expert, recently reported on a special meeting held by the governors of the Inter-American Development Bank or IDB that was held on March 24th in Mendoza, Spain. The meeting of the governors was held to discuss the promotion of private investments in Latin America and Brazil specifically. After much discussion, it was agreed that private investment would benefit Latin America and aid Brazil in its infrastructure projects. Visit infomoney.com to learn more.

Dyogo Oliveira, the Minister of Planning, Development, and Management, defended his stance to the governors regarding the importance of attracting private investments and believes that establishing some guarantees regarding the financial success of the investments will attract more foreign investors. Luis Caputo, the Chairman of Inter-American Development Bank, agrees with Oliveira and proposals to work on leveraging private investments into the region are in the works. Spain’s Secretary for Economy and Business has mentioned that Brazil is a highly dynamic market and that it is worth placing it as a priority for Spain.

Dyogo Oliveira predicts that a new industrial revolution is on the horizon. He termed it the Industrial Revolution 4.0 and thinks that private investments are integral to the success of this new and upcoming industrial revolution. He may indeed be right that private investments into infrastructure could push Brazil into a new industrial revolution that will bring new business opportunities.

However, at the moment private investments are down and are not enough to spur the growth that DyogoOliveira hopes for. This could damage Brazil’s plans for future infrastructure projects. As a result, Brazil has looked in a new direction. Brazil has formed public-private partnerships or (PPP’s) for public works projects. Felipe Montoro Jens reports that Brazil hopes to use these partnerships to achieve its goals, but there may be a problem in the difficulty of mobilizing private capital.
