 Trends Toward Globalization in Chile

Show Summary Details


Chilean society exhibits fully globalized socioeconomic consumer behavior alongside a conservative socioreligious order in which evangelical faith (itself a product of an earlier globalizing force) plays a major role. This tension carries over into the values of Chile's business elite and cultural intelligentsia. The question is whether this is a transitional stage toward a European‐style globalized modernity or the expression of a regional alternative modernity that is receptive in respect of market economics but conservative in respect of family and societal values.
