The Latin American Economy

By 2020, 1 of every 10 dollars in the global economy will originate in Latin America. We will soon represent 10% of the world’s population and will contribute with 9% of the planet’s GDP.

No doubt these numbers reveal a huge social and economic potential, so much so that today we could call Latin America the Sixth Continent.

But is this how other regions view us, like the Sixth Continent? Is this how they think of us? How much is really known about Latin America? How do the news sell us out there? Are we viewed as a solid economic region? A region with stable investment policies?
