This blog will focus on the economic and political developments surrounding trade and investment in Latin America and the United States. Businesses and individuals who do business in Latin America, practitioners in the public and private sectors, students of international relations and economics, and international trade and development professionals will all find useful information here. The majority of the content will be analysis of current developments, but from time-to-time, opinion pieces will be added to provide alternative perspectives of particular issues. Please contribute to the discussion by commenting on pieces that particularly interest you.
