Two out of three Latin Americans will choose a new president in 2018. At the launch of Americas Quarterly’s new issue, experts and investors will dissect the risks and opportunities that the elections will bring in Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, and elsewhere. Corruption will be the defining issue everywhere. Will voters seek to blow up the establishment and join the rising nationalist trend seen worldwide? Join us for a discussion on the most important and volatile electoral year in recent Latin American history, and its potential impact on the region’s economies.
