So many different and sometimes contradictory arguments to be made from this table on 2010-2011 foreign direct investment in Latin America, hot off the press from CEPAL:
--So a leftist/populist president in Argentina means an FDI drop. Oh wait, there was a massive increase in Venezuela
--So drug violence in Mexico means a drop. Oh wait, there was a big increase in Guatemala
--Chile is the most developed country in the region and investors love it. Oh wait, it saw a drop of 14%
--El Salvador faces severe problems with political violence. Oh wait, it had the highest increase in the entire region, at 1,404%
--Brazil is a currently a darling of investors. Yes, true, with 157% increase
--Paraguay is having major economic and political problems, so is not popular with investors. Yes, true, with the biggest drop in the region (-31%)
