populism. Latin American politics, ‘populist’ has been used as a term to describe almost any
government,including some neoliberal ones of the 1990s. This has been reproduced in the academic
context, sometimes making the analytical value of the concept worthless. Populism has often been
under- stood as a predestined trait of Latin American regimes, doomed to be anomalous by nature. One
big example of populism is Argentina’s populist dictator Juan Perón. He was at one point a officer than
promoted to a colonel. in 1946 he became a caudillo, or personalistic leader. His wife was popular in her
own right, she was a very famous actress named Eva Perón. she became a helper to the poor classes in
her country and as a couple her and her husband banded together as a populist couple. another
example of a populist leader would be Hugo chavez.
n 1998, Chávez won the presidency with the overwhelming support of poor Venezuelans, who remained
a majority of the population despite the country’s oil wealth. Railing against the political oligarchy,
Chávez promised to abolish poverty and create a more authentic democracy. As president, he dedicated
himself to tireless self-promotion. He spent hours each week speaking to the nation on his television
and radio show, Aló, Presidente, touting the achievements of his so-called Bolivarian revolution and
excoriating foreign intervention.
