GBUS 462 - China-Latin America Relations
Over the past decade. China has emerged as a principal source of imports, an important market, a rapidly emerging investor and an important source of finance for the Latin American region. China’s economic impact on the Latin American region has been uneven: its rapid industrialization and high growth rate has led to a significant increase in the prices of many commodities exported by Latin American countries. On the other side are the non-commodity exporters, which have not benefited from China’s terms of trade boost. To the contrary, Mexico and the Central American countries, whose primary exports are manufactured products and textiles and apparel that directly compete with China, have seen neutral or negative effects from China’s rise. The recent slowdown in China's growth has raised many questions in the regions regarding policy sustainability. This course will examine the growing literature on China’s impact on Latin America, focusing on the economic but also looking at the political, societal and security aspects and will examine data on Latin America's relations with China. The course will be carried out as a seminar, which will require active participation. Students will be expected to engage in analytical exploration, serve as class discussion leaders, and carry out and present a case study/research project.
