Di Tella, Torcuato y Kirchner, Néstor. Después del derrumbe. Teoría y práctica de la Argentina que viene. Buenos Aires, Argentina, 2003

Jul 07, 2011
Después del derrumbe, es tiempo de construir puentes de plata entre la dirigencia y la sociedad, a partir de una renovación política que oxigene las instituciones y formule un nuevo proyecto de país, que le permita a la Argentina encontrar su destino como Nación. Torcuato Di Tella, indaga al dirigente que considera capaz de articular un nuevo espacio político en el que confluyan la ´´izquierda racional´´ y el ´´peronismo decente´´, para dar vida a un ´´animal´´ con cuerpo peronista y patas extrapartidarias, como hiciera con éxito Juan Domingo Perón en 1945, uniendo socialistas, conservadores, sindicalistas, intelectuales, católicos e independientes. Néstor Kirchner, reflexiona acerca de la crisis y la oportunidad de dejar atrás los años en que la política estuvo al servicio de los mercados -razón principal de su descrédito y base de la corrupción para volver a convertirla en síntesis del interés general. A través de las páginas de este libro, Kirchner y Di Tella intentan acortar distancias entre la ´´torre de marfil´´ del observador científico y el campo de batalla donde el dirigente político libra su combate y se ´´embarra´´, para abordar un amplio y profundo debate sobre la Argentina que viene. more
