The article explains and discusses the notions of extractivisim or neo-extractivism, terms coined in the late 2000s to describe the critical analysis of economic development policies based on the exploitation of natural resources and on the mineral industries. The author highlights the role of Latin American social scientists and theorists in formulating these concepts in the context of Latin American economic policy and developments. Issues addressed include the definition of neo-extractivism developed by sociologist Eduardo Gudynas, social aspects of natural resource management in Argentina, and the belief in progress.
