Former Andean correspondent for the Financial Times charts the decline of the U.S. influence in a region long considered to be its backyard.

In the past decade, South America's leaders have increasingly snubbed U.S. efforts to guide the terms of their economic policies and trade agreements. While Washington has been distracted by military campaigns elsewhere, rivals such as China, Russia and Iran have expanded their clout in Latin America, and U.S. influence in the region has fallen to a historic low—just as the U.S. has become more dependent than ever on exporting to Latin America and importing its oil.

Combining sharp wit and great storytelling with trenchant analysis, Hal Weitzman examines how America "lost the South" and argues that if the U.S. is to find a new role in a world of emerging superpowers, it must reengage with Latin America.

Speaker:

•Hal Weitzman, author of Latin Lessons: How South America Stopped Listening to the United States and Started Prospering (February 2012)

Discussants:

Patricio Navia, Master Teacher of Liberal Studies Program, Latin American and Caribbean Studies, New York University

•Moderator: Christopher Sabatini, Editor-in-Chief, Americas Quarterly and Senior Director of Policy, Americas Society/Council of the Americas
