Latin America and its Era of Discontent?


Latin America and its Era of Discontent? Can Latin America rise out of an era of discontent where public protests have challenged the directions of leftist and conservative governments? The region has the human and natural resources to help diversify global supply chains, build clean energy economies and create sustainable jobs. Yet across the hemisphere, public protests have disrupted political and economic life. What is driving the discontent? Will it doom the region to populist politics? How can governments and investors resuscitate opportunities for stability and prosperity? Speakers Mauricio Cárdenas, Visiting Senior Research Scholar, Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia University, SIPA Ricardo Hausmann, Rafik Hariri Professor of the Practice of International Political Economy and Director of the Growth Lab, Harvard Kennedy School of Government Shannon K. O’Neil, Vice President and Senior Fellow for Latin America Studies, Council on Foreign Relations Chair Carlos Pascual, Senior Vice President, Global Energy, IHS Markit
