World News: Exuberant South America ...

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

The near-chronic instability of the South American continent irritates Europe and the United States in search of established economic and diplomatic partners. But the DNA of the continent hampers this wish to the point of pushing both actors away from the current upheaval.

Few people in Europe, apart from a few specialists, geographers or historians, are interested in the upheavals that are shaking the South American continent. Certainly, wrong because before the turmoil crossed by Argentina and Brazil, two continental heavyweights, even global, Venezuela and now Bolivia, Europe should take the time to assess the pulse of this continent rich in potential.

Long placed in the bosom of the United States, the South American continent has gradually freed itself from the tutelage of its powerful neighbor to become a full player of the contemporary world.

Of course, there are fewer links between Europe and South America than those joining the continent with the United States or with the Alena (Economic Alliance between Canada, the United States and Mexico) but the turmoil of the continent does not bode well for the world economy in particular.

Commercial War and DNA

The current political stalemates and tensions in the countries that make up the continent are likely in the short or medium term to jeopardize future trade relations, which are often conditioned by the political situation of the countries concerned.

And against the backdrop of a global economic downturn, a North American presidential campaign and a bleak trade war between China and the United States, South American unrest has added to the nascent concerns.

Continent to Manichaean behavior, able to pass from an economic growth out of norms to the deepest economic depression, South America turns out to be a financial and diplomatic partner capricious and inconstant, so many defects which, in a world where the International alliances can be invaluable, distort and irritate European or North American economies in search of stability.

And it will be difficult, if not impossible, to channel a continent whose DNA remains fundamentally imbued with this impetuous and unpredictable trait of character, which constitutes the countries of South America.

Instability and Disability

The United States, which had long made South America their preserve, now looks at the continent with a more detached eye without losing its full interest, as Mexico's border serves as a welcome buffer for a Trump administration. stuck on the migration issue.

Seen from Europe, the chronic instability of South America, at first a folkloric one, is, past the comical aspect, perceived as a real economic and diplomatic handicap which could eventually push the European partners to s away from South America.

For now, we must wait for the new Bolivian crisis with the departure of President Evo Morales, the release of former Brazilian President Lula, the Venezuelan stalemate between Nicolà Maduro and Juan Guaido and the recent elections.

Argentina's epic and eventful presidential elections have completed the wearing of an atypical continent in a world longing for a long and peaceful stability.
