At the macro-level, the combined effects of the oil and debt crises coupled with poor policy responses merely meant the further institutionalization of the chaotic politics that Ayala (2008) notes had long characterized Ecuador. Eleven administrations held power in the last two decades; new Constitutions were introduced in 1998 and again in 2008. Once oil became a major element in Ecuador, grass-roots movements were energized by its negative legacy of socio-environmental impacts. The contentious movements of the Amazon region have become decisive actors and have altered the rules of the game for the oil economy (see Chapter 8 by Rival).
