style="font-family: Times New Roman,Times,serif;"> style="font-weight: bold;">Latin America and the New Global Capitalism
by William I. Robinson

During the mid-1980s, I would travel from my home in Nicaragua to San
Salvador, El Salvador, where I frequented the campus of the Central
American University. At lunchtime we would exit the main campus gates
to one of the city's principal thoroughfares, the Autopista Sur, dotted
by rustic locally owned restaurants serving El Salvador’s signature
plate, pupusas. Today, there is not one pupusería outside the
university gates. The skyline is instead blighted by an endless array
of signs beckoning diners to all the well-known transnational fast food
chains, from Burger King to Pizza Hut, Kentucky Fried Chicken to Panda
Express and Pollo Campero.
