  • Latin American Economic Outlook for 2016

    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...

  • Latin America - Model for Growing Middle Class?

    "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...

  • Venezuela: The world's worst-performing economy - Counting the Cost

    With hyperinflation so severe that people have to carry backpacks stuffed with cash to the local supermarket, it's no surprise that Venezuela - a country which is in its worst shape since World War II - is the world's worst-performing economy. Across the oil-rich South American country, chronic power outages, crumbling infrastructure and severe shortages of basic goods have led the army and police to guard food supplies. Less than three years after the death of the charismatic and larger-than-life Hugo Chavez, the hugely popular leader's Bolivarian Revolution is being blamed for failing Venezuela. But how did the country get itself into this mess? With oil accounting for 95 percent of Venezuela's export earnings, plummeting world prices have sent the economy reeling towards collapse. ...

  • Latin American economies need to diversify, says Treasury Dept. undersecretary

    With the annual IMF and World Bank meetings set to take place in Lima, Peru, from October 9 to 11, Under Secretary Nathan Sheets of the U.S. Treasury Department gave an overview of Latin America's economic feats and remaining challenges. "The Lima meetings will bring to the world’s attention the major accomplishments that many countries in the region have made toward shared prosperity," said Sheets. But despite having achieved low and stable inflation, the under secretary said countries need to diversify their economies to mitigate slowing demand for commodities and strengthen their structural financial policies.

Less than three years after the death of the charismatic and larger-than-life Hugo Chavez, the hugely popular leader's Bolivarian Revolution is being blamed for failing Venezuela. But how did the country get itself into this mess? With oil accounting for 95 percent of Venezuela's export earnings, plummeting world prices have sent the economy reeling towards collapse. Home to the world's largest inflation rate, the IMF expects inflation to blow past 700 percent this year. And just last week, President Nicolas Maduro, Chavez's successor, was forced to make the controversial decision of raising fuel prices - by a whopping 6,000 percent. And with fears growing that Venezuela won't be able to afford its debt repayments, the situation could get even worse. Patrick Duddy, the director of the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies at Duke University and a former US ambassador to Venezuela joins Counting the Cost to discuss how Venezuela fell into this extraordinary mess. Nigeria's changing fortunes Nigeria is struggling to leverage the country's vast oil wealth with low oil prices taking a heavy toll on its finances. The world's eighth-largest oil exporter with almost 90 percent of its export earnings tied to oil, President Muhammadu Buhari has faced a tough first year in office. Since entering office in April, Buhari has seen Nigeria's total debt rise to $65.4bn, the currency collapse to record lows, and inflation rise to 9.6 percent - the highest level since 2012. Dr Amy Jadesimi, the managing director of the Nigerian oil services group LADOL, discusses Nigeria's lack of diversification and high dependence on crude oil. - Subscribe to our channel: http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/
