About

Uruguay and Argentina serve as points of departure for understanding the complexities of the Latin American economies. The region faces many economic challenges but can also boast of economic opportunities and successes.  In this course students will observe how Latin American nations deal with resource price volatility, inequality, and globalization over the course of three weeks.  Topics of study will include include the delivery of healthcare, inflation, exchange rate systems, property rights and the many ways that Latin American nations are impacted by the world economy.   Course delivery will take place at the Universidad de Montevideo, on field trips within the capital city of Uruguay, and on two multi-night excursions into the interior of the country.  Toward the end of the course, students will cross the Rio de la Plata and spend three days furthering their studies in Buenos Aires, Argentina.  Please note that this course is available for Area IV general education credit as participants will interact with local students, business people, and professional government economists with the intent of gaining a deeper understanding of common economic characteristics throughout Latin America.
