Declining Empire secures resources

Since the Monroe Doctrine of 1823, the United States has always considered Latin America as a "backyard", an exclusive zone for the exploitation of strategic resources and a market for its products.

The region is underdeveloped and poor, but rich in water, energy and essential mineral resources. The accelerated structural decline of what was the only world power has forced Washington to take off its democratic mask and aggressively seek political, military and economic dominance. It is this week's topic with Eduardo Artés and his guest, Fernando Estenssoro.
