The World in 2015 - Central and South America

The role of class, corruption, national culture and violence as contributors to instability, will figure highly on the affairs of Central and South America in 2015. From Honduras to Venezuela to Brazil to Argentina to Colombia, events to define the a fore mentioned contributors, will shape the future of the two regions in 2015.

A Chinese connected construction project to build a new Canal digging between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, is a major geo-political infrastructural project slated in Central America in 2015. 

On the other hand, prospects for peace with rebels could make a vital contribution to South American stability in 2015. And prospects to strengthen the systems of democracy will continue in Central and South America in 2015.


As a hub of the war on drugs, Honduras has emerged as an international murder-rate leader. Rampant violent crime with an assuming impunity to justice, along with flagrant abuses of human rights, have all made Honduras very dangerous. In 2014, many unaccompanied Honduran children crossed the United States border. In 2015, Honduran families not enjoying local security, will again seek to safeguard their loved ones by  traversing the borders of neighbors. Added pressure will be placed on the infrastructures of Nicaragua and Guatemala in 2015 because of an influx of immigrants from Honduras.


Violent and peaceful protests have not derailed a controversial dredging between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans canal project awarded to a Chinese firm. The deal has been inked and the ground has been broken on the proposed 172-miles-long canal. Environmental impacts by the project will be realized in 2015 as more protests continue.


A recent unilateral cease-fire by Farc rebels in the 30-plus year-old rift with government forces, hold much prospect for peace and stability in the land of some many beautiful people in 2015. However, the Colombian army has not signed onto the truce, thus raising concerns of more fighting in 2015.


A salary-hike to the working people of Venezuela has prolonged President Nicolas Maduro's popularity among this large sector of his society and it has accorded him a cushion upon which he could continue to rule Venezuela in 2015. Wide scale food and product shortages, falling oil-prices along with opposition resistance, will confront Maduro in 2015.


Debt and other economic concerns will be the main forces at the fore in Argentina in 2015. The country will temper its political agenda based upon its economic health well into 2015.


Corruption, political investigations and the role of class will gain more attention in Brazil in 2015. Yet, there will be no erosion  of culture as Carnival and the exotic beauty of Brazil's curvaceous people will remain on international display in 2015.


Increasing events of un-contacted rain forest tribes encroaching upon settlements in Peru, will continue into 2015 raising concern that there might be an emerging environmental disturbance deep in the Amazon.

Bolivia and Ecuador:

These two nations would be encouraged to embrace strong democratic systems in 2015.
