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.

    "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.

  • Money in minutes – how money transfer agencies are changing economies | DW Documentary

    Money makes the world go round and many companies seek to profit from this. Migrants wanting to send their paychecks back home rely on money transfer agencies. These agencies include giants such as Western Union and MoneyGram – and they’re making a killing from their work. Every month, around 200 million people send their hard-earned pay back home to the countries they left in search of work. And that is changing entire economies. It’s dead simple: money is paid in at an office in the USA, Europe or the Arabian Peninsula and can be picked up within a few minutes at one in the recipient country - in Latin America, Africa or Asia. The World Bank estimates the transactional volume at about $420 billion a year, sent by Chinese garment workers in Chinese-owned factories in Italy; by Nepalese ...

    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. ...

Money makes the world go round and many companies seek to profit from this. Migrants wanting to send their paychecks back home rely on money transfer agencies. These agencies include giants such as Western Union and MoneyGram – and they’re making a killing from their work. Every month, around 200 million people send their hard-earned pay back home to the countries they left in search of work. And that is changing entire economies. It’s dead simple: money is paid in at an office in the USA, Europe or the Arabian Peninsula and can be picked up within a few minutes at one in the recipient country - in Latin America, Africa or Asia. The World Bank estimates the transactional volume at about $420 billion a year, sent by Chinese garment workers in Chinese-owned factories in Italy; by Nepalese servicing air conditioning systems on skyscrapers in Dubai in over 50 degrees of heat; or by Hondurans working on Florida's construction sites. The complex effects of these transactions are changing the economies of the home countries: in fact they now make up a significant part of gross national income for some of them. In the meantime, agriculture and infrastructure are left untended, which means that even more people are being forced to emigrate. _______ Exciting, powerful and informative – DW Documentary is always close to current affairs and international events.

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. 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/

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Why do some states enjoy wealth, security, health and nutrition while others face poverty, unemployment, lack of health care and safety? James Robinson is a political scientist and economist. Professor Robinson teaches Economics, History and Government at Harvard University. His main research interests lie in the study of the economies of developing countries. He travels a lot in Latin America and Africa and spends his summers teaching at the University of Bogota. In 2012, he was elected Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. In 2007, James Robinson and Daron Acemoglu coauthored the book “Economic Origins of Dictatorship and Democracy”. The book was considered the best book released on U.S. policy and international relations. Their latest book, "Why Nations Fail", was included in the ten best releases of the 2012 list in Washington Post. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
