Trump and Latin America

Friday, 18 November 2016

What does Trump augur for Latin America? While the Trump team has said very little about Latin America, Trump’s comments on Mexico have had serious reverberations for that country’s economy, such as lowering the value of the peso. Other than possibly Cuba, the rest of the Americas will be unaffected. Missing from the article is the impact on the US economy of protectionism. For example, if the Mexican peso is cheaper, US exports to Mexico will be more expensive. This will reduce jobs in the US.
