Great Decisions: Latin America's Political Pendulum

Fran Holmes has chosen to lead our sixth Great Decisions topic for the year."The pendulum of Latin American politics is swinging rightward once again. Yet as the 'pink tide' recedes, the forces of change have more to do with socioeconomics than ideology. Dramatic economic and political crises have coincided in countries like Brazil and Venezuela. Still, the final result for Latin America may be the emergence of centrist pragmatic modes of governance and with them, opportunities for the U.S. to improve relations. The new administration must look beyond the neoliberal model of the 1990s, and develop an approach to relations fit for the 21st century." Hopefully many of you will be back from summer vacations to rejoin us.
