Spanish term or phrase: restauración (neoliberal)
I am translating a poetic text about the life of the underclass in Argentina, and I keep coming upon the phrase "restauración" in relation to the current quite conservative government:

La restauración careta con sus dos vertientes va hacia el corazón de las vidas runflas. Enfriar y ordenar el consumo parecen ser las medidas más seria de este gobierno. Menos guita en el bolsillo, tarifas y precios por las nueves, policías protegiendo las veredas liberadas y controlando los cuerpos son golpes certeros al corazón del runflismo.

and

Las vidas runflas seguirán afirmando sus derechos de sociedades segmentarias contra el orden del banquismo y la restauración. Son cuerpos nómades, festivos y vitales que descubrieron una forma de vida ancestral y a la vez inaudita.

I am finding some hits on the web for "neoliberal restoration," but not many. Perhaps a better alternative would be backlash? adjustment?

Many thanks!
