Retos y Oportunidades de América Latina: Implicaciones para los EE.UU.

Alexander Monge-Naranjo, an economist at the St. Louis Fed, discussed the current economic situation facing Latin American countries and their respective economic relationships with the U.S.

These countries are very diverse and exhibit important differences from one another in terms of their trade and investment associations with the U.S. For example, Mexico is a major trade partner for the U.S., while Brazil and Argentina trade relatively little with the U.S. Monge-Naranjo will explore how different scenarios would affect the U.S. economy, especially in light of the emergence of China, India and Russia and the relative decline of Europe and other developed countries
