Speakers: Rebecca Ray (Pre-Doctoral Fellow, UMass Amherst) and Prof. Kevin Gallagher (Boston University) China has become a key source of trade, finance, and investment for Latin American that has brought significant benefits to the region, especially in the face of the global financial crisis. Based on preliminary results of a multi-country study, presenters will outline the benefits and risks LAC is facing and examine whether Latin America is balancing those benefits and risks for sustainable development. The Global Economic Governance Initiative (GEGI) is cosponsored by the Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future and the Center for Finance, Law & Policy. GEGI strives to advance policy-relevant knowledge about economic governance for financial stability, human development, and the environment.
