GONZALEZ, María del Carmen Pérez  and  FARINAS, Lázaro Díaz. Productive Foundation of Social Programs in Bolivia and Ecuador. Econ. y Desarrollo [online]. 2018, vol.160, n.2, e20. ISSN ISSN.


Contributions made by social programs for decreasing poverty in Bolivia and Ecuador, countries related to the Alianza Bolivariana para los Pueblos de Nuestra América -Tratado de Comercio de los Pueblos (ALBA-TCP) (Bolivarian Alliance for Peoples of our America- Trade Treaty of Peoples) draw attention of experts. But the occurrence of these programs in underdeveloped countries sets out the problem of sustainability, which gets worse by the decrease in prices and the demands of their exportable products, the right wing strengthening, Neoliberalism and proliferation of economic blocs. The aim of this paper is to evaluate how those programs fit to the socioeconomic base, through the assessment of their economies and their socio-productive structure in the selected countries. As ALBA-TCP supported implementation of social programs, reference will be made to the social programs promoted by this alliance.

Keywords : ALBA-TCP; socioeconomic base; development; poverty; sustainability.
