Latin America on the Rise?

Recently I told my mom that I think Latin American countries have great potential and could possibly play a very influential role in the twenty-first century. She didn’t see this happening and admittedly I didn’t have much evidence to support my idea.

Apparently, I’m not the only one with this idea: The Atlantic has an article called “The Most Important Alliance You’ve Never Heard Of” in which the author explores such an idea. It’s a long article, but an interesting read. I’m not a Latin American specialist, so I don’t know as much about the region as I’d like, but am eager to learn more.
