In many times I have read about Latin America and the United States it usually has something bad to go along with the title. But, when one were to look at trade as of late, it would appear that U.S and Latin America are doing fairly well. The stats would say that the U.S. receives at least 20% of trade from Latin America. Yet, with that being said Latin America is still struggling. There are countries that have more issues that others especially economically and politically, but there is little the U.S. can do. Intervention has been attempted and it seems that there has to be more done in Latin America for things to work out.
