Growth in most Latin American countries has been dealt a blow by the fall in commodity prices since 2014. Does the end of the commodity boom mean sustained lower growth in the region? Are all the countries in the region in the same boat? Which regional economies are more diversified and therefore more able to deal with the challenge? In this context, which economic policies should be implemented? In which countries are these economic vulnerabilities likely to have the most significant social and political consequences?

Héctor Hoyos In this talk, Hoyos interrogates Marx’s notion of commodity fetishism from the vantage point of new materialisms. Complicating the notion that counternarrative may reveal the social relations behind the fascination toward commodities, Hoyos considers literary and artistic case studies from Colombia and Mexico (Fernando Vallejo, Margo Glantz, and Daniela Rosell) to characterize a mode of representation he calls “hyperfetishist.” Hyperfetishism exacerbates social tension, seeking to disturb our relationship with the object, rather than to demystify it. From the softness of shoes to the glow of faux gold, from unfashionable toilets to crumbling houses, Hoyos shows how contemporary Latin American culture theorizes globalization’s emerging material paradigms. Héctor Hoyos is Associate Professor of Latin American literature at Stanford University. His book, Beyond Bolaño: The Global Latin American Novel (Columbia UP, 2015), examines post-1989 Latin American novels of globalization and their relevance for world literature.

The commodities industry—from extractives to farming—has been a key driver of Latin America's record economic growth. However, commodity exploration has also led to accelerated deforestation across the region; increased air, water, and soil pollution; and heightened health, climate, and disaster risks. Supporting businesses in their adoption of sustainable practices and programs can help to mitigate these adverse consequences and ensure that the commodities industry can facilitate, rather than hinder, the region's longterm economic and social development. This session will explore how responsible resource management can protect public health and extend the economic gains generated by scarce natural resources.

Recorded on December 3, 2018 The Hoover Institution hosts panel discussion "Latin America in an Emerging World" on Monday, December 3, 2018 from 3:30pm - 5:00pm PST live from Stanford, the fourth of a new series led by former secretary of state George P. Shultz, whose intention is to learn from our changing world, to map our governance options in response, and to help structure a variety of efforts going forward. Background: Foreign policy starts in the neighborhood. Mexico, Central America, and South America are at the tail-end of decades of rapid workforce growth, a period during which migration was central to their relationships with the United States. The panel will address how a tighter labor supply, alongside new means of production, will affect the economic development of our southern neighbors. It will also consider whether the public transparency offered by new forms of communications can improve governance, and with it, growth. What can domestic governments across the region—and the United States—do to help take advantage of these emerging transformational opportunities while avoiding potential pitfalls? Moderator: Pedro Aspe, Former Secretary of Finance of Mexico Panelists: -Richard Aitkenhead, former minister of economics and minister of public finance of Guatemala -Claudia Masferrer León, assistant professor and coordinator of the Seminar on Migration, Inequality and Public Policy at El Colegio de México -Ernesto Silva, distinguished visiting fellow at the Hoover Institution and former president of the Unión Demócrata Independiente (UDI) party in Chile -Ben Sywulka, founder of Hapi.vc and former director of the Private Competitiveness Council of Guatemala About the project: New and rapid societal and technological changes are complicating governance around the globe and challenging traditional thinking. Demographic changes and migration are having a profound effect as some populations age and shrink while other countries expand. The information and communications revolution is making governance much more difficult and heightening the impact of diversity. Emerging technologies, especially artificial intelligence and automation, are bringing about a new industrial revolution, disrupting workforces and increasing military capabilities of both states and non-state actors. And new means of production such as additive manufacturing and automation are changing how, where, and what we produce. These changes are coming quickly, faster than governments have historically been able to respond. Led by Hoover Distinguished Fellow George P Shultz, his Project on Governance in an Emerging New World aims to understand these changes and inform strategies that both address the challenges and take advantage of the opportunities afforded by these dramatic shifts. The project will feature a series of papers and events addressing how these changes are affecting democratic processes, the economy, and national security of the United States, and how they are affecting countries and regions, including Russia, China, Europe, Africa, and Latin America. A set of essays by the participants will accompany each event and provide thoughtful analysis of the challenges and opportunities. https://hvr.co/2O5AoDK

"Rapid economic growth and more inclusive social policies in Latin America in the last decade have lifted 50 million people into the middle class, which for the first time rivals the poor in number, the World Bank said in a study on Tuesday. "Most countries in the region are on their way to becoming middle-class societies; this represents a historic change," World Bank President Jim Yong Kim told reporters. Rising income levels have also created a 'vulnerable' class, which at 38 percent makes up the largest income group. These people hover just above poverty, living on a daily income between $4 and $10 per person."* Cenk Uygur analyzes how Latin American countries ruled by extreme leftists could have succeeded in adding 50 million people to the middle class. Was it commodities, a system with more credence than previously believed, statistics mainly focusing on Brazil, or something else? Dave Koller weighs in. *Read more from Anna Yukhananov/ Reuters: http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/11/13/us-worldbank-latam-middle-class-idUSBRE8AC0UH20121113 Support The Young Turks by Subscribing http://bit.ly/TYTonYouTube Support The Young Turks by Shopping http://bit.ly/XhuNqO Like Us on Facebook: Follow Us on Twitter: http://bit.ly/OkX87X Buy TYT Merch: http://theyoungturks.spreadshirt.com/

http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/investing-trading/invest-in-middle-class-growth-in-latin-america Invest in Middle Class Growth in Latin America By www.ProfitableInvestingTips.com A strong economy commonly has a strong middle class and the purchasing power of the middle class further drives the economy. As Latin America grows so does its middle class. To a large degree to invest in Latin America is to invest in middle class growth in Latin America. Overall the middle class has grown from 40 percent of the Latin American population to just over 50% in the last decade. Per capita income south of the Rio Grande has risen from the $7,000 a year range to just under $12,000 a year. A combination of social and political changes has made a big difference. The economic boom prior to the bust of 2008 paid Latin America for its commodities. While boom times have slowed down the growing purchasing power of this segment of Latin society provides good reason to invest in middle class growth in Latin America. IPads and Blackberries Everywhere Large parts of Latin America have jumped from poor or no telephone service to reliable wireless communication in a generation or less. Rather than string miles of now-expensive copper wire phone lines nations in Latin America put up cell phone relay towers across the nation and coaxial or fiber optic cable for fast internet services in cities. Buy a month by month contract with British Cable and Wireless in Panama and talk to your mom in Bogota or children in New York. With fast telecommunications come advertising for everything from new cars and homes to washers, refrigerators, clothing, and Christmas presents for the kids. If you are interested in doing fundamental analysis of Latin American investment opportunities just walk down a main road in a Latin American city and count the hand held internet devices. Retailers Expand and Consolidate A good way to invest in middle class growth in Latin America may well be to check out the retailers. Almacenes Exito in Colombia is selling shares of its stock to finance expansion into Uruguay as well as other Latino nations. In Brazil, Companhia Brasileira de Distribuicao Pao de Acucar (CBD as and ADR) is acquiring retailers across the nation that many call the next Latin American superpower. A quick trip to Panama City, Panama at the junction of the Americas will show the interested investor an economy that did not experience a recession in the last few years. Economic growth in Panama is coming back to around ten percent a year. Shopping malls that rival those in North America are packed with shoppers speaking Spanish, English, French, German, and Han Chinese. If you are interested in investing in foreign stocks, Latin America may be the next great place to be. As always the easiest, and perhaps safest, route to foreign stock investment is with American Depository Receipts. These are foreign stocks listed on US stock exchanges. Invest in dollars in companies that make their money in pesos, balboas, colones, and reales. Invest in Middle Class Growth in Latin America through Real Estate We mentioned Panama in our article, Foreign Real Estate Investments. One can invest in middle class growth in Latin America through real estate. While running a business in Latin America during your retirement years may not be your cup of tea, buying 30 th floor condo with a view of the Pacific approaches to the Panama Canal may be. If so, consider that the best route to invest in middle class growth in Latin America may well be to buy and least property in the city where high rises continued to rise in the last four years.

In which John Green teaches you about nation building and nationalism in Latin America. Sometimes, the nations of Latin America get compared to the nations of Europe, and are found wanting. This is kind of a silly comparison. The rise of democratic, economically powerful nations in Europe came about under a very different set of circumstances than the way nations arose in Latin America, so the regions are necessarily a lot different. But why? John will explore whether it was a lack of international war which impeded Latin America's growth, which sounds like a crazy thing to say, but you should hear him out.

Luis Miguel Castilla, Peru's Minister of Economy and Finance, says Latin America is positioned well for the current international economic situation because each country is pursuing its own policies and the region can adapt quickly to challenges. For countries like Peru, he says, commodity prices are very important. If sharp growth or declines happen, it would affect their economies because they are dependent on commodity exports. However, the country's government, private sector, and households don't carry a large amount of debt and can weather price shocks well. Hedged policies and macroeconomic stability like Peru's have been maintained in most Latin American countries, Castilla says, and this is an economic asset to countries in confronting future crises.

Real Vision also explains how a surplus of commodities, from oil and gas to cocoa and coffee, have been squandered under the rule of former President Hugo Chavez and current President Nicolas Maduro. However, despite the dire state of affairs, hope comes in the form of potential outside investments once economic sanctions are lifted. Filmed in 2018 in New York and Caracas, Venezuela.

The 2016 edition of the Latin American Economic Outlook explores how the region could deepen and improve its partnership with China as part of its development agenda. Despite the end of the “Golden Decade” of the commodities boom, China will continue to be a game changer for the region. The report contends that the world’s economic center of gravity is moving away from OECD countries towards emerging economies, a phenomenon called “shifting wealth.” Ties between Latin America and China are evolving well beyond trade and challenge the region to adopt modern reforms and policies to build a mutually beneficial partnership with China. This report is a collaborative effort between the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), CAF (Development Bank of Latin America) and ECLAC (Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean).

November 30, 2016 | New Delhi ABOUT THE EVENT India has stepped up its economic and commercial engagement with Latin America recently. But the overall trade has fallen over the past financial year, due to the drop in primary commodity exports from Latin America such as crude oil. In spite of this, India’s exports have kept pace with its important trade partners and new markets have opened. The recent finalisation of the expanded Preferential Tariff Agreement with Chile, ongoing negotiations with the 4-nation Mercosur to expand the PTA with that bloc, and forthcoming negotiations with Peru, bode well for an accelerated commercial relationship. The broader economic relationship is thriving, with increasing corporate interest and investment in a wide range of sectors – extractive, manufacturing, services and a healthy exchange of technological expertise. The session will aim to explore the steps being taken to facilitate economic and commercial exchanges to realise the immense potential both regions offer each other.

According to Antonia Stolper, a Partner in the New York office of Shearman & Sterling LLP and head of the firm's Latin America practice, "The impact of the current expansionary economic times in Latin America is having a range of important effects on our business and on the business of our clients. As countries come out of the recession we are seeing the needs to borrow, to issue equity, to raise money from the private equity markets, eagerness to do M&A transactions, to expand globally, and eagerness to invest throughout the chain." In this exclusive LegalMindsTV interview, Ms. Stolper discusses the impact of Latin America's growth on the global capital markets as the region has been investing in reducing its significant infrastructure deficit, taking advantage of an export boom -- particularly in commodities sectors such as oil and gas, minerals and mining, and agricultural commodities -- and benefiting from a strong banking system that has been the result of regulators watching many past crises and focusing on high liquidity and capital requirements. Stolper also explores some of the key challenges for international companies and lending institutions working in the region — from regulatory, environmental and social perspectives — as well as private equity, M&A and public-private partnership opportunities.

Plummeting oil and other commodity prices along with sluggish demand is breaking the bank for many countries. Brazil's export dependent economy has been hit hard. The cash shortage is now forcing some towns and cities to cancel their annual carnival celebrations.

Emerging market commodity exporters - including many in Latin America - have been shaken by last year's collapse in natural resource prices, including those of oil, iron, and copper. This has raised concerns about debt sustainability, inflation, and in some cases political stability. This session will explore the implications of the commodity price slump, including for portfolio flows and FDI, as well as the associated challenges for policymakers.

The performance of economies across the region has been intricately tied to the global demand for – and price of – commodities. Current global trends and the medium- to long-term outlook imply prolonged decreased demand, with important consequences across the region. Some economies are projected to grow at relatively healthy rates of up to 3 percent in 2016, while others are projected to experience negative growth. Policies instituted over the last decade have influenced these divergent paths. What policy options and practices are available to national and sub-national governments, companies, and civil society to maximize economic benefits from the extractives sector while ensuring social and environmental integrity for long-term sustainable and inclusive growth? How can social and environmental concerns be fully embedded into long-term growth perspectives in the extractives sector? Please join the Latin American Program and the World Bank Group for a high-level dialogue with diverse stakeholders on this important topic.

Multiple crises in the Latin American past, including severe banking crises, have been accompanied by sharp and persistent devaluations. This time around, the impressively large currency depreciations (over 50 percent in some countries) resulting from the ongoing commodity price shock and volatile international capital markets have resulted in contraction in output growth (and even recession in Brazil), but no financial crisis. Why not? And can Latin America muddle through this episode of adverse international conditions and avoid the severe financial crises that distinguished the region in the 1980s and 1990s? Or will cumulative shocks eventually expose domestic financial vulnerabilities and cause severe crises to ensue? Learn more at http://www.cgdev.org/event/latin-america-back-80s-or-heading-rebound
