Many countries have a long history of excluding poor people from politics. Holzner and co-author Carew Boulding find, however, that in recent years a majority of Latin American countries have achieved near equality of participation across wealth groups, and in some cases poor people participate more than wealthier individuals. How can this be? Voice and Inequality provides important insights about how the elusive goal of political equality can be achieved even in contexts of elevated poverty and inequality.
Comment by Professors Laura Gamboa and Matthew Burbank followed by discussion with the author.
