This paper studies the effectof commodity prices and economic crisis on the 21st century Latin American left-leaning populism. Our results shows that higher economic prices are correlated with more populism conditional on countries already being under a populist regime. We do not have conclusive statistical evidence of the effect of economic crisis on populist regimes.
