Latin America as the possible detonator of the world terrorism

Abstract

Latin America could be potential place of a new terrorist attack. Argentina’s economy is vulnerable in world process of globalising. The high rate of unemployment has caused a level of social unrest in Argentina. The major political challenge is to improve the employment situation. Official policy is encouraging insiders and outsiders to bring investments into the country. One-third of all foreign investment – especially in privatised state industries has come from debt-equity conversions. Argentina’s foreign debt of 132 USD billion represents about one of seventh of all developing countries debt. Economy crisis in Argentina, situation in Brazil, Uruguay and other Latin American countries could lead to the terrorism similar to the one that is coming from Islamic East.
