Abstract:

Latin America has experienced a rise in power of the left wing leaders and the renewal of populism. These leaders portray an Anti American rhetoric and look to challenge U.S, influence and American interest in the region, The normal end state of this type of leadership is the polarization of the society, authoritarianism and social and economical collapse. In the international opinion, populism has been considered extremely dangerous or regional stability, In spite of these facts, his policies have been more cooperative than competitive, and his capacity of influence and promote a lack of stability in the region overestimated.
