United States Policies and the Latin American Economies

Synopsis

This volume analyzes the complex economic relationship between the United States and Latin America during the 1980s and into the 1990s. The contributors demonstrate in detail how the latent tensions among sometimes conflicting U.S. policy goals have been exacerbated by the economic crises of Latin America in the 1980s. Among the key topics addressed are the mounting debt crisis, privatization, Latin American integration, and the specific effects of U.S. policies on various aspects of Latin American economies.
