Description For the first time, Mexican democracy has a president in power who defines his government as “post-neoliberal.” In this article I explain how Mexico is facing the paradox of a turn to the left as drastic as it is impotent. By far, the government of Andrés Manuel López Obrador is the most powerful seen to date by Mexico’s young democracy; however, it is nowhere near to dismantling neoliberalism. Here I propose that we facing a failed progressivism, and conclude that it makes no sense to conceive of this government as “left-wing.”
Por primera vez, la democracia mexicana tiene en el poder a un presidente que define a su gobierno como “posneoliberal”. Al respecto, en este artículo explico que México está frente a la paradoja de un giro a la izquierda tan drástico como impotente. De lejos, el gobierno de Andrés Manuel López Obrador es el más poderoso que ha tenido la joven democracia mexicana; sin embargo, está muy lejos de desmontar al neoliberalismo. Aquí propongo que estamos frente a un progresismo fallido, por lo que concluyo que es un sinsentido conceptualizar como “de izquierda” a este gobierno.
