Third World Countries - 622 words
The United States must realize that the economies of Latin American nations will play an important part in the future of our own economy, and that it must begin to lead, invest, and aid not just Mexico, but countries such as Peru, Argentina, Bolivia, Chile and Columbia into the twenty first century.
