VARGAS HERNANDEZ, José Guadalupe. Del gobierno por el pueblo a la posdemocracia económica transnacional, global y cosmopolita. Convergencia [online]. 2007, vol.14, n.43, pp.211-245. ISSN 2448-5799.

The objective of this work is to analyze the evolutive and dynamic concept of democracy as the governments' legitimacy argument. It begins with the analysis of the democracy model sustained in the political and economical liberalism, then it continues with the republican model and the mention of the participation's dysfunctionalities and the democratic exercise. Finally it ends with the emergence of the post national democracy that tightens the links between the ideology of the free market that directs the neoliberal economical democracy and the liberal democracy. This post democracy is manifested as a transnational economical democracy that promotes the free market and the values of neoliberalism and post modernity at a global and cosmopolitan level in order to justify the advancement of the economical globalization processes.

Keywords : Democracy; cosmopolitan democracy; economic democracy; global democracy; liberal democracy; participative democracy; representative democracy; post democracy.
