Hubris and Prudence in Nicaragua

The latest from fellow Fernando Menéndez about China’s place in Nicaragua: 

“A few short years ago, Chinese investments in Latin America seemed to mean changing the nature of the hemisphere in economic, if not political, terms.

It was also meant to establish China’s footprint in the hemisphere. Today, the proposed Nicaraguan canal has not broken ground.”
