Politics and the Culture of Ecuador By: Kyle brady

Cultural Norms: How does Collectivism, Selfishness and Religion play into government?

Collectivism: The practice or principle of giving a group priority over each individual in it.

Mainly shown within families. Less emphasis on the Individual.

Origins? Indigenous people.

Selflessness: Having little or no concern for oneself, especially with regard to fame, position, money, etc.


Through extravagant churches and an 89% Catholic population, Ecuador proves its commitment to Christianity to all.

How does this play into Government? Potential Problems?

Democratic Socialism: "Democratic socialism is a political ideology that advocates political democracy alongside social ownership of the means of production, with democratic management of enterprises within a socialist economic system."
