Bureaucratic-Authoritarian Rule Throughout the twentieth century Argentina Brazil and Chile have each experienced a period of bureaucratic-authoritarian rule and repression There are many theories and ideas as to why these countries went through these periods The dependency theory is one of these Almost all political problems have a common root the economy The dependency theory places blame for the political problems of these countries on external factors Argentina Brazil and Chile are what can be considered the have-nots The have-nots rely on agricultural and natural exports Argentina and Chile rely on grains and livestock while Brazil relies on coffee corn and sugarcane While these are high demand products they are also fairly cheap The have-nots rely on what are called the haves The haves are the more industrialized countries such as the United States and Japan and rely on the export of more expensive manufactured goods The price of manufactured goods climbs in greater increments than agricultural goods This results in the have-nots exporting more while they are unable to afford to import the same amount This makes countries like Argentina Chile and Brazil have to borrow money These countries then end up incurring extremely large debts to foreign creditors This is where the bureaucratic-authoritarian rule comes in to play As the foreign debt grows the public sector becomes very dissatisfied with the way the economy is being handled It is at this point that a leader emerges from the military ranks This leader then overthrows the current government This is done with complete support of the public which has been won over by promises of a brighter future In all three of these countries this pattern was very closely followed As time goes by little changes in the economy of the country and the promises of grandeza become more and more distant The public sector is once again very dissatisfied with its government Rumors and ideas begin to float and circulate throughout
