One thought on “What If Latin America Ruled The World?: How The South Will Take The North Into The 22nd Century

  1. Andres Sanchez

    Parte de una pregunta interesante y aporta datos atractivos, pero durante el libro repta la idea de que el mundo ser a mejor si algunos de los productos m s nefastos del pensamiento latinoamericano como el socialismo del siglo XXI, el modelo corrupto y asistencialista de Lula y Dilma en Brasil financiado por Odebrecht y Petrobras , la Teor a de la Dependencia y la b squeda de leyes de cuotas globales en ese sentido por algo Fernando Henrique Cardoso vio esto como un error de juventud y se desmar [...]

    Lo que m s me gust del libro fue lo bien investigado que est , se nota que el autor sabe de lo que habla y no presenta el tema central a a ligera y eso se agradece.La pregunta que plantea el autor en el t tulo del libro no deja de ser interesante teniendo en consideraci n el momento en que el libro fue escrito, aunque el desarrollo de los eventos desde el 2010 hasta ahora creo que le han quitado algo de impulso y hemos tenido que ver algunos de esos sue os l menos retrasarse, si no desaparecer p [...]

  3. Jessenia Peña

    It was good I mean it s depressing to read a book where the author predicts that the US could become the next United States of Latin America and then fast forward to the present and the president is an bigot disguised as an orange It is a very well written book I loved it Although I do wonder what he would think about Dilma Rousseff and the whole Petrobras scheme, Venezuela s crisis under Maduro and let s not forget the whole Odebrecht mess

  4. Garan

    Superb book for understanding globalization in relation to the Latin American countries At times, very distressing to read, especially in the slice of water melon incident Highly recommend.

  5. Paul

    It s a big question, and it s asked on the final page, after three hundred odd pages of context framed within economics, history, and a bit economics I m not sure the question is answered however, maybe it s not even meant to be, but then again it could have been right in front of me and I would have trudged past without noticing I struggled through this book with a determined resignation that I would make it to the end.When I was about three quarters of the way through, a friend pointed out th [...]

  6. John

    Based on a very interesting idea, that Latin America has unique lessons to offer the world, this book is rather frustrating in being so discursive, pursuing every available tangental theme I struggled to read it properly, in the end dipping into passages I thought particualrly interesting What a shame a writer with great analytical ability, capable of drawing out a multitude of interconnections, but not able to structure the result into a readable, well a readable book

  7. Ian McHugh

    This book is massive in scope and is difficult to read The diversity of content make for occasional wow moments as Guardiola Rivera links seemingly unconnected themes together with skill The broadness of content does leave a few unanswered questions by the end of the book and, as mentioned, the difficulty in reading some sections means that, although a point is hammered home in the mind of the reader, it is done so to excess.

  8. Hans Hoffmann

    There is a lot of good information in this book however I found it not very well focused as it seemed the author took me all over the globe and I never did find it tied back to the title of the novel There is no question Mr Guardiola Rivera is well read and versed in the history of Latin America and Latino s lot of discussion tied to the demographic trends of Latino s in the US I found myself educated but also very frustrated in reading this book.

  9. Elizabeth Barnes

    Interesting subject and view on Latin Americas role in world history But overall the book is quite difficult to read and follow at times.
