Estamos mejor

"Indeed, contrary to Chávez’s attacks on oligarchic capitalism, the news of late[en america latina] is good. The economies of the region have entered their fifth year of expansion, unemployment is down, poverty is declining, inflation has dropped dramatically, exports and trade surpluses are high, and credit ratings have improved. Latin America did not get here by adopting the failed economic policies of Soviet-style socialism or populist nationalism of past military regimes, according to Reid.
