United States Trade and Investment in Latin America: Opportunities for Business in the 1990s

Synopsis

The book analyzes prospects for U.S. trade and investment growth in Latin America in the context of President George Bush's proposed Enterprise for the America's Initiative (EAI) and ongoing negotiations toward a free trade agreement with Mexico. It investigates the causes of Latin America's economic downturn in the 1980s, the current adjustment efforts being made across that continent, and the revision of U.S. economic policy toward the nations of that region. The book evaluates the commercial potential of individual Latin economies using achieved adjustment to date as its central criteria.
