Summary of The China Triangle
Latin America’s China Boom and the Fate of the Washington Consensus
China’s activity in Latin America introduces a new angle in America’s ties with both.
China is a crucial trading partner for Latin America. China invested billions in Latin American infrastructure development and provided a market for Latin American resources that fueled a boom from 2003 to 2013. Professor Kevin P. Gallagher’s report provides a thoughtful introduction to China’s relationship with Latin America. His book is a quick read, with a strong overview in the first chapter and data and examples in subsequent chapters. Though always politically neutral, getAbstract recommends Gallagher’s insights to investors and executives with interests in trade, natural resources, China or Latin America.
In this summary, you will learn
- What forces have driven development in Latin American economies since the late 1800s,
- How China engages economically in the region, and
- What this bodes for the United States and for Latin America.
