With China worrying about sustaining growth and property
bubbles, India faltering, Europe's economies stagnating, and the US
showing only limited signs of a post-crash recovery, Latin America
remains one of the few regions exhibiting continuing growth and
healthy long-term prospects.
The Futures Company has put together a new report: 'The Coming
Decade for Latin America, Belleza Del Sur.' Although
there are dangers in talking about such a large and complex region
in general terms, it is worth identifying a confluence of factors
running in Latin America's favor at present.
- A young population, giving a 'demographic dividend' in many
- A 'political dividend' in the shape of center and centerleft
governments, which in turn have an economic impact both by reducing
the region's historically high levels of economic inequality and by
increasing levels of social protection, which encourages lower
savings rates and increased consumption
- A 'technology dividend' from the take-up of mobile, which
increases economic growth
- A 'China dividend' in which demand from China has reduced the
region's historical dependence on the United States. China is now
Brazil's biggest economic partner.
This report contains consensus based forecasts for the
main Latin American economies: Mexico, Argentina, Brazil
