(p.92) 4 The Economic Dimension
Brazilian Foreign Policy after the Cold War

Since each side of the pyramidal model of hegemony asserts how these would rely on other aspects for stability, consensual hegemony's economic facets should be able to encompass the participating states. The economic dimensions included in Strange's model of structural power highlights the importance of finance and production as a means to exercise control as well as sources of power for encouraging other actors for the global system. In this chapter, the author adopts a different approach in analyzing the interdependence of the pyramid's facets. Here, it is shown that the foreign policy implemented during the Cardoso era pursued South America's economic space through utilizing “new” regionalism in understanding interdependence, especially with the security aspect of the hegemony model.

Keywords:   hegemony, consensual hegemony, pyramidal model, Strange, new regionalism, interdependence, finance, production
