En esta investigación se analizará la relación entre el mercado, la sociedad y el estado presente en las etapas de discusión inicial del plan. Este estudio fue realizado analizando los documentos oficiales producidos en el período de referencia a través de métodos cualitativos. Se encontraron al menos tres ideas problemáticas de Política Social el énfasis puesto en la inclusión en el mercado, la idea del estado como garante de derechos y las limitaciones institucionales. Finalmente se discute brevemente cómo estas ideas pueden influir en el futuro desarrollo del país. (Less)
