Contrasting Developing Economies:
Santiago, Chile and Buenos Aires, Argentina

Friday, June 21 - Sunday, June 30

While Chile and Argentina are neighboring South American countries sharing a common language, they are also a study in contrasts, both culturally and economically. This immersion experience focuses on the contrasts between these two economies and how political forces are leading these economies down different paths.  By visiting firms in different key sectors of their respective economies as well as interactions with government and non-governmental agencies, we see how the political climate has a direct impact on the ability of businesses to thrive and how they adapt to changing political winds.
