    If it wants to do something real, CELAC should do what the European countries did after World War II: they started with a preferential agreement to export coal and steel, and expanded it over the years to include growing numbers of goods, until they ended up creating an economic and political union.


    But — like so many times in the past — Latin American leaders meeting in Caracas did it in reverse: they started with the big fiesta, and left the concrete agreements to lower regional tariffs for later.

    I think the Dominican government wants all the free money, foreign investment and access to cheap markets they can get and will call papá gringo when the socialists try to take over. With the thousands of American citizens (if not ten's) here it's a slam dunk.

    Pat yourself in the back to all the countries that participated, excluded the most powerful economic country in the world, and your number one trade partner, good for you!

    I could hear the dignitaries at the first summit, "but don't we already have Mercosur and ALBA?", enter Hugo, "yes, but this time it will be different".

    All subsidized by Arabs and China with money paid by the American elois for oil and trinkets that they themselves have in excess.
