About Scherlis’ work, the author of the foreword to the book Marcos Novaro said that it "highlights the need to complement an awareness of citizens and elites about the inefficiencies and distortions that this situation imposes on political competition and the quality of public policies with new rules in the electoral system as in the administration of state resources ". Regarding Laría’s chapter, Novaro said that it "reveals a paradox that has not stopped surprising those who study the Kirchners, that although being a political project so inclined to promote and extend state intervention on the economy and, generally on the social life, it had at the same time, very little interest in strengthening the administrative apparatus."
