Latin America’s new geopolitical reality

Professor Niall Ferguson visited São Paulo in April to address Itaú’s annual MacroVision conference, and found time to sit down with Euromoney to talk fintech, social media and trade. In particular he focused on China and how it will impact Latin America’s future.

Niall Ferguson has a call in a little over half an hour, he warns, after the introductions are done. He needs to call his immigration lawyer ahead of a naturalization examination he faces in the US on his return. As a professional historian at Stanford, he points out, it would be more than a little embarrassing if he failed to answer questions on the US constitution, for example. 

“I know about the first and second amendments for obvious reasons, but I need to find out what the third one is,” he says, presumably joking. (Or perhaps not: Euromoney checked it later and it places restrictions on the quartering of soldiers in private homes without the owner’s consent, forbidding the practice in peacetime.)
