How China Meddles in Latin America (w/ Dee Smith, Elizabeth Economy, & Christopher Sabatini)



Is China’s sphere of influence extending into Latin America? Dee Smith of the Strategic Insight Group, Elizabeth Economy of the Council on Foreign Relations and Christopher Sabatini of Columbia University outline the extent to which China is expanding its operations — and by so doing, courting both allies and pariahs of the United States. Should America view this as a direct threat, or is China simply extending the reach of its Belt and Road initiative in order to maintain essential raw material supply chains? Filmed on September 26, 2018 in New York.

The saving grace in this truly scary situation is that countries like Indonesia, Malaysia, The Philippines, Vietnam etc really have a visceral hatred of the Chinese. China literally has no friends at all amongst the countries that are near them, and those countries are not fooled for one second by friendly overtures from China, some of which have nasty historical recollections of being dominated by Chinese merchants. Another inescapable attribute is that the Chinese are extremely racist and genuinely believe they are superior to almost everyone else; often the mask slips and foreign countries see that they are not respected… Read more »

Btw, how can the rest of the world take seriously a country, that gives as an official narrative, that building 7 from the WTC, came down in less than 8 seconds, because of an office fire in a lower level office..!
Then, they don't even honour, many of the important treaties they cosigned with other nations..!
They simply, unilaterally, walk away from their formal commitments…
Get serious Americans..! What kind of nation are you becoming..?

There's business, trade and money to be made where there are customers; sovereign nation to sovereign nation. What's US excuse for getting involved?

The assumption here is that US has never "meddled" in Latin America – or still does not "meddle" in Latin America? Give me a break!

Part of this is because climate change alarmists have made it so loans for infrastructure/industry are no longer being provided unless they are wind or solar.

Why commenting on behalf of all those countries involved in BRI on the negative side?
Just ask them, of course, they liked very much for their countries to prosper and getting richer. If in debt, it only matters about leasing out their properties for a couple of decades, and in the meantime get paid for the leasing. There is a saying, no adventure no future.

thanks for this .. Dee struck me as wanting to push a paranoid view, during the first half, but then his guest's insights moderated the discussion, to be simply very informative, and balanced

it should go without saying, that China is using an old US play book, but much better

Dee's paranoid perspectives are so very national, they're boring

this is all about business, and the strides China has made in the region, should be starkly seen for what they are .. better negotiations, and outcomes

I would love to see All of these commentators rejoin for updates

Many thanks

76 ports. Really? That’s the whole idea. Chinese money is so corrupt and self serving. Just like the loans given to the native Americans who built casinos that could not be paid off reasonably. Watch how long it takes for them to add airports to those ports. They will be building up a way to attack North America.

Sour grapes when US can't help to develop the poor countries. How about 800+ military bases around the world? How does iit develop the host countries compared to BRI?

Perkins book "confessions of an ecconomic hitman" . China is just using the same play-book the US used in Latin America to steal their resources and control assets/politicians. Ouch! turn about is fair play. China is just a lot more ruthless about "helping" the developing world.

All China is doing, is filling the spaces USA has left.. So many omissions with Latam..!!
Not even a continuous PanAmerican highway..!!!
How much do they spend in programs like the "wars on drugs and terror"..?? For who's benefit?. For the drug cartels ? For the weapons manufacturers?.. that have flooded Latam with illegal weapons
Total failure..!
Piece of cake to take their place…

Latin America is not the US's "back yard." It does not belong to The US. It belongs to the Latin Americans. China's way of exerting influence is through business not regime change.

When my grandfather was in charge of Ford Latin America in the late 70s, he worked with the Jorge videla dictatorship that disappeared and tortured people. I love realvision finance and I don't think China is ideal, but it is unfortunate to see realvision constantly pushing the blatant National Security narrative. BERNIE2020

I dont see any problem with China investing, meddling, etc in South America. The USA has gone around the world doing the same. If China builds a million strong military base in Mexico near US boarder how can USA complain.

Oohhh what a disaster. China actually builds stuff in Latin America instead of just financing regime changes like the US.
