Battling economists

A Washington economist takes on The Economist.
There's an impending, but as yet unrealized, debate here on the perspectives laid out in Michael Reid's new book, Forgotten Continent: The Battle for Latin America's Soul, which all Latin Americanists should read and discuss.
Basically, Reid sees hope not in Chavez's so-called autocratic populism, but rather in the democratic reformist governments that have come out of Mexico, Chile and Brazil.
