examples of poor governance abound

across Latin America although the majority are of the type that the us either passively or actively has supported since the 1890s.


Brazil's semi-coup away from an arguably modestly successful center left government shows little sign of improving the country, similarly for Argentina's back and forth a couple of times since the

Junta fell.


Even the free market poster child- Chile- seems to find itself somewhat captive to commodity cycles.


In some ways the leftist experiment in Venezuela is like the guy renting 10,000 acres- would have worked OK if prices didn't get cut in half.
