UN: Latin America, Caribbean face worst-ever recession

A regional United Nations body is forecasting the worst-ever economic contraction for Latin America and the Caribbean, following oil prices moving into negative territory as demand drops due to global coronavirus restrictions.
Many Latin American countries which produce oil will be hit badly and the UN Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean predicts a 5.3 percent drop in economic activity.

    Bad management and foreign interferance….

      Since no-one is on the roads much the price of oil has dropped SOOO much, now would probably be a good time to invest in oil when the economy gets back to normal, which it will eventually

      @Nolan Big investors are getting out of oil.

      Vick When Saudi Arabia missile defence system didn’t work as promised they made a big mistake – they started talking to Russia to replace it with their system so US tried to orchestrate another coup with the relatives of Salman – he caught wind of it and had them arrested – now knowing he is no longer in favoured position he increases the oil production and decimated the US shale production (with the resulting drop in price) in response – then the US announces its plans to remove missile system and military advisors – is that about it or did I miss something? Lol

      You had better just stay home in Caracas. USA has no more free bread, is going bankrupt. And illegals arrested at the border are put into barbed-wire compounds with no food, no water, no medical, and held for years under armed guard.

      @josefina bananos Ok, but how are illegals entering the US? Didn’t Trump build a wall? I remember him saying he would.

    • josefina bananos Reply

      @Danko Some are still getting in. By ways TOO NUMEROUS to mention, but just a few examples are:
      1. Tucked inside semi-truck tires;
      2. Sewn inside mattresses.
      The ones who manage to crash the border get help from traffickers (FOR A LARGE FEE, OF COURSE). As to the wall, it’s not entirely built yet, but there are certain places in the wall that have been breached by traffickers using cutting torches, etc.

    • 22nd Reply

      The typical communist answer, always blaming the USA for their incompetency. Why instead of blaming the USA don’t start working for your own country instead of running away from the corrupt governments that you elect to run your countries. I am Venezuelan and I admit that Latin America is trash from Mexico all the way to Argentina because, we the people are stupid, we let corrupt or both corrupt and communist governments take control of our countries and ourselves. We live in misery because we are too stupid to develop our nations, we let corrupt dinosaurs to take everything from us. In the case of Venezuela, we have a communist parasite named Maduro who is always blaming the USA for all the misery that we Venezuelans live in, but the family and daughters of this communist parasite travel all the time, live, and study in the country that this communist trash called the Empire (USA). Do you see how it is, these corrupt or communist/corrupt have been mocking us for decades, trying to make us believe that all the misery in Latin America is the USA fault when their families are having fun and the good life in the country that they called the empire.

      There are two types of people who protect corruption or corruption/communism in Latin America,
      The first type is people who are simply stupid, these kind of people are the ones that the corrupted ones used as their slaves to convince the rest of the population that they are living in misery, poverty, violence, oppression, and fear because of the so-called Empire (USA). This kind of people don’t have the capability to think for themselves, they are too stupid, so the corrupted ones take advantage of their stupidity.

    • Jared P Reply

      @22nd so what exactly is the solution to getting corruption and communism out of latin america? yet another revolution? legalizing drugs and becoming a narco state? what approach is latin america supposed to follow. I for one support the legalization of all drugs in latin america, boosting tourism and immigration, even though it would unilaterally be condemned worldwide, because latin america needs a bold method of action to take over the market in some respect.

  22. peter schmidt Reply

    Their ideology in Venezuela is so obsessed that no one is allowed to make 1 cent profit from the oil, 100% of all income must be claimed by the government for the people. Look what you get, Gasoline / petrol was sold for a couple cents per gallon at Venezuelan gas stations, no profits, no re-investment, no innovation, no money for peripheral supporting industries to develop. Everyone loved the government because gasoline was cheap. For decades Venezuela has a “one trick pony” economy supported by 1 industry. They thought their good buddies in the OPEC cartel would keep the oil price riding high, then a few years ago Saudi Arabia did not like the new competition from Canada oil sand and USA fracking and instructed OPEC to oversupply the market to drive the US frackers bankrupt. With the help of Covid 19 Saudi Arabia is succeeding, US frackers are in big trouble all right, but so is every other “one trick pony” economy that relies on oil, including Saudi Arabia and Russia that kicked off this latest round of oversupply just before the virus got out.

    • peter schmidt Reply

      @22nd I am happy for you that you see the truth. Socialism looks great in the text book, but cannot work due to human nature – The people in charge will always take a larger portion of production than they earned, and many people will get much less than what they earn. Democratic Capitalism is not perfect either but it’s the best system where a hard or smart worker can keep more of what they make and invest in education or business to increase their earning capacity. Governments don’t know how to farm, how to mine, how to invent new products or how to employ people, only free people that can invest in their idea generate wealth for themselves and the people they employ. Government’s job should be making strong laws , strong courts and police to enforce them to stop corruption and then the people can make the economy work. When the government is the corrupt thief, nothing can work.

      @Deborah Schumann unfortunately there is no perfect solution here, people will die with or without lockdown, perhaps less people will get infected with the lockdown but you have to take into account two facts here, first, the fatality rate is less than 5%, compare that to the sum of fatalities for starvation and lack of care for other diseases; fact 2 is that a large number of people in Latin America have informal jobs, street sellers type, they live day by day, no savings, locking them down for a long period without financial assistance is a death sentence. People should be out working again but still wear protective measurements .

      I am Iranian and I hate my government but I’m glad they are helping Venezuela because I know they’re in trouble and we are human and we should help each other in Crisis…

    Many will use the coronavirus as an excuse. They set these countries up to fail by not diversifying their economy.

    The Mexican President originally said this virus isn’t to be feared. He was very okay with it.
    To quote him directly “We are Mexico, nothing bad will happen to us”.

    As usual.. Al Jazeera’s Fake news.. They always pick on Latin America We still not screwed like the rest of
    Europe, north America, Arabian countries…. We still have all the mineral, oil resources, best climate.. Many countries tried to dominate the region… no luck.. We still independent.

    • X Green Reply

      No, you are not independent. Look at Venezuela.

    • Glimmering Sea Reply

      You are sort of right. Latin America gets has a very bad reputation not just because of the corruption, but Hollywood. However, the situation in Latin America is way better than let’s say..Afghanistan or Yemen or even India (too rich, but more poor people despite it’s global standing). Also, Latin America has had too much foreign interference from super power countries like the USA and countries in Europe. Obviously corruption like the rest of the world.

    I wish that it was as easy as destroying the rich and removing corrupt government officials, but that would only play a small part to a deeper issue: “Greed & Hatred”……

    @Chloe wilson I think a combination of factors work in our favor…one is that we have lots of beaches and sunshine.. traditionally we have always used the beaches as our elixir..also many of us grow herbs in our backyard yards that we drink as teas and use as remedies for our ailments so as soon as we get a sore throat we will drink our bush teas and go down to the beach.. additionally our diet is different to the first world because many of us don’t have the money to buy the foods you guys eat and drink..so we eat from our soil..things like sweet potatoes..yams cassava eddoes and and an assortment fruits and vegetables and meats that we raiseb and grow ourselves…I think our diet is more strengthening and healthy than that of the first world…but as I said and will maintain it is ultimately God on our side because we call on Him in every trying situation and this one is no different…He answers those who call on Him with humility and faith

    @Hilary joe Every fruit and vegetable you mentioned are so good for you. Our food for the most part is chemically enhanced. These days you don’t understand what the ingredients are bcs they are all filled with things that are bad for us. I hope everything works out well for you and your family. Thank you.

    Fact check- none of the countries mentioned (Mexico, Venezuela, Colombia, Argentina) are part of the Caribbean. “Caribbean islands” is not specific enough. Which Caribbean islands?
