Es drängt sich jedoch die Frage auf, ob NPM in Ländern wie den lateinamerikanischen, in denen die Bürokratie im Sinne Max Webers nie actual existiert hat, überhaupt sinnvoll und erfolgreich sein kann. Dies wird in der vorliegenden Arbeit sowohl überblicksartig für Lateinamerika, als auch detailliert anhand des Länderfalls Mexiko untersucht. Im Mittelpunkt der examine zu Mexiko steht dabei ein gesellschaftliches und politisches Phänomen, das als eines der zentralen Legitimitäts-, Effektivitäts- und Effizienzdefizite staatlichen Handelns in jenem Land gilt: der Klientelismus.
Bei der Beurteilung der Sinnhaftigkeit und des Erfolgs von NPM-Reformen in lateinamerikanischen Ländern ist zu berücksichtigen, dass dort neben der angestrebten Effizienz- und Leistungssteigerung immer auch die Vertiefung der Demokratie zu den Zielen der NPM-Verfechter gehört. Diese demokratieorientierte Zielsetzung von NPM haben die lateinamerikanischen Regierungen selbst explizit formuliert: 1998 veröffentlichten sie eine paintings take place mit einem starken Bekenntnis zu NPM; darin heißt es unter anderem, NPM habe „a direct influence at the consolidation of democracy.” Die Resultate der NPM-Reformen in Lateinamerika müssen sich folglich auch an dieser demokratiebezogenen Zielsetzung messen lassen.
Die gegenseitige Beeinflussung von NPM und (defekter) Demokratie in Lateinamerika ist Gegenstand dieser Arbeit. Die zentrale those lautet, dass das Wechselverhältnis von NPM und Demokratie in Lateinamerika stark durch die Existenz informeller Institutionen wie des Klientelismus geprägt ist.
