Essential Geopolitics: How Shifting Politics in Chile and Peru Will Affect Mining Interests

Jul 6, 2021 | 15:09 GMT


In this episode of the Stratfor Essential Geopolitics podcast from RANE, Emily Donahue speaks with Latin America Analyst Carmen Colosi about Chile and Peru, which are both seeing far left-wing factions take a larger share of their governments. Peru recently chose a far-left candidate as president. Chile, meanwhile, is also about to undergo elections in which leftist candidates are predicted to do well. Colosi discusses how these political shifts could affect existing pro-business policies in both countries, specifically in the mining industry.
