Global Latin America: An Awakening Giant

Video: The story of Latin America has been a continuous story of poverty and the painful dichotomoy between the reactionary rich and the poor. But things are changing rapidly. Mexico and Brazil are rising as economic powers. Brazil, in particular, now sees itself as a major nation with vast resources and a competitive labor force that will plant Latin America firmly on the international stage. But there are many problems. Birth control is sporadic. Education is weak. Expectations are high. Racism is strong. The path to global recognition is not easy.
