"Desde mi punto de vista –y esto puede ser algo profético y paradójico a la vez– Estados Unidos está mucho peor que América Latina. Porque Estados Unidos tiene una solución, pero en mi opinión, es una mala solución, tanto para ellos como para el mundo en general. En cambio, en América Latina no hay soluciones, sólo problemas; pero por más doloroso que sea, es mejor tener problemas que tener una mala solución para el futuro de la historia."

Africa and the Power of the Pivot - NYTimes.com

Africa and the Power of the Pivot - NYTimes.com: "In addition, though Chinese companies have made friends within African governments by bankrolling large infrastructure projects, they have also alienated local communities by insisting that much of the materials used in these projects come from China — and that roads, bridges, port facilities and airports are built by Chinese workers.

This problem has already aroused anger in several African countries, where Chinese workers deprive locals of jobs. There is no reason why Western-based companies can’t exploit these vulnerabilities and compete more effectively with Chinese companies.

But the real winner in this story is Africa, where dozens of governments now have choices and can expect multinational and state-owned companies from the developed and developing worlds to compete for access to local consumers and favorable investment terms. This is the power of the pivot."
