TABLE 1. State Infrastructure and Collective Action against Neoliberalism
State InfrastructurePropositions
Public health infrastructureProposition #1: The more extensive the public health infrastructure (hospitals, clinics, social security institutes), the greater the scale of mobilization against neoliberalism.
Mass educationProposition #2: The more extensive the public education infrastructure (primary/secondary schools and universities), the greater the scale of mobilization against neoliberalism.
State subsidiesProposition #3: The greater the level of prior state-sponsored subsidies of food, vital necessities, and agricultural inputs, the greater the scale of mobilization against neoliberalism.
State transportation and economic infrastructureProposition #4: Regions with large concentrations of the state's transportation (highways) and economic infrastructure (water/aqueducts, electrical power, telecommunications, ports) will experience more collective action against neoliberal development policies.
