Free Trade in Latin America

Marcela Sanchez:

Anyone following Latin America closely knows that the majority of its leaders want freer trade. And while some may take advantage of [Venezuelan President Hugo] Chavez's aid, primarily in the form of cheap oil, they see their long-term prosperity tied rather to the United States.

But those who look for expansion of free trade anytime soon may be in for a disappointment. Indeed, in the spirit of straight talk on trade, Bush administration officials now would have to admit that Washington's highly charged political climate is making the city less enthusiastic about free trade these days.
