Remember Latin America?
All those readers who suspected that I'd lost track of the global political economy while refereeing debates on Iraq will feel better by checking out my latest New Republic Online essay. It's on globalization and Latin America. Go check it out.posted by Dan on 10.29.03 at 11:56 AM
What happened to the characteristic posting of sources? Inquiring minds want to know!posted by: Robert Tagorda on 10.29.03 at 11:56 AM [permalink]
I think you could have added how rising anti Americanism has made it politically much more popular to oppose a FTA. Kirchner and Lula both rose to power at least in part on anti US sentiment.
And yes, that's mainly due to Bush who is widely despised by Latin American voters.
A FTA would have always been difficult since Brazil has historically been suspicious of the US. But anti american sentiments have made it worse.posted by: GT on 10.29.03 at 11:56 AM [permalink]
Al Gets Results From Daniel W. Drezner!!!
When Dan recently posted, after the end of the Red Sox season, that he wouldn't be posting about baseball for a while, I replied:
"But look on the bright side - with nothing interesting in the sports world to talk about, maybe we get a post out of Dan on this whole Bolivia situation! (:-))"
Looks like Dan did even better than a blog post... a TNR.com article!posted by: Al on 10.29.03 at 11:56 AM [permalink]

"Tagorda Gets Results from Dan Drezner! *Lots* of Results!"
Thank you. I should add that I enjoy your essays not only because they're insightful but also because they often lead to other good reads. Hence my request for links....posted by: Robert Tagorda on 10.29.03 at 11:56 AM [permalink]
