Latin America has been a region of conflict, economic growth and
development. The region has also continued to be characterized by a wide
range of social structures, political systems, and economic models. The
region has seen a steady economic growth, which has caught the attention of
international investors. In contrast, however, the region has also been
characterized by a large economic disparity between its inhabitants.

Progressively, Latin America has been experiencing economic growth but with
such growth several challenges are encountered. The proposed book's aim is

their consequences.
