PeronismPeronism is an Argentine political ideology based on the ideas of former president Juan Perón.
Peron was a pragmatic figure, and through the course of his long career his views would frequently change. His ideology was nevertheless marked by some constants, including:
- Strong central leadership
- Freedom from foreign influences
- A third way approach to economics; neither communist nor capitalist, but instead incorporating some elements of both
Today, there are several Argentine political parties idenfying themselves as Peronist, including the party of the nation's current president, Néstor Kirchner.
