    The vice president is a black woman too. Not some rich privileged bltch, but a representative of the people. She could also affect life on the streets a lot. Poverty, women's roles. Interesting times. I just hope it all works out well for the poor people here. They have needed this change for decades.

    They're not similar

    You are correct. They aren't remotely similar. I think the people who cry the most about the word 'socialist' can't even actually define the term!

    I live on a Caribbean Island owned by the Netherlands. We have socialist Helathcare! OMG! We also have more rights, and more freedom than the USA!

    There are differences in socialism, democratic socialism and being a 'leftist'.

    Nothing much will change in Colombia outside of more candidates running in the future. If anything major changes it won't be until the end of Petro's term when we have the next peaceful transition of power--something today's republicans and the people who cry 'socialist!' the most don't seem to understand since January 6th, 2021 when the 'conservatives' in America tried to stage a coup against the US govt!. That trumpist fascist energy is a far greater threat to freedom and democracy than Petro!

But after the initial resentment passes. Depends how the new party performs. Market shocks tend to pass quite qucikly, I imagine all the new party hope for is stability and support from its major regional and economic allies.

    How about you. What do you think?
    Well I don't think Colombia will ever be like Venezuela. There's a big difference between a left leaning socialist and a criminal dictator. As far as exchange rates go I'm hoping if he raises taxes and scares away foreign investment it will put the exchange rate more favorable for us. I don't think things will change much on the ground tho. México hasn't changed much since AMLO was elected except for taking cartoon characters of of cereal boxes LOL.

    Do we really believe these leftists have integrity? I don't see leftists / socialists really doing anything for the people, while at the same time damaging any progress made on capitalism. I feel for the Colombian people, I really do. At lest with Obama, the poor bought into (and some received) free Obama cell phones! Jejejeje.

    Right. Like all bullies, it has to choose its victims well. Mexico is too close to home and part of NAFTA. And he is another left wing leader. Is pushing back against the USA and showing solidarity with Latinoland. I felwl we are really on the cusp of smthg.

    "There can be no Americas Summit if all the countries of the American continent do not participate," Mr. López Obrador said. "Or there can be, but we believe that means continuing with the politics of old, of interventionism, of a lack of respect for the nations and their people. " (President López Obrador of Mexico said he made the decision because Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela were not invited.).

    Push this on to Talking Shlt, but I think it is relevant to mongering in the medium term in Colombia and MDE.

    NL, my gal sent me a text saying that she hopes this president respects private property, the free press, and entrepreneurship. The worst is that he is a climate change nut and wants to shut down oil drilling in Colombia. Why anybody would run on that now is beyond me.

    Yes. As of tomorrow morning there will be 46,719 US sanctions against Colombia, the assets of every US citizen currently in Colombia will be seized and anyone refusing to join the socialists will be imprisoned. On the plus side, all prostitution will be government controlled with the price set at 9500 pesos for 30 minutes. China has already announced they are sending 250,000 troops to support the revolution.

    They elected a new President. That's all. It's unlikely there will be any significant change.

    Viva Colombia! Am sure there will be some changes that will be significant to mongering in MDE and Colombia in general. Can't wait for the predictions to circulate. Hehe.

    Seriously? You think a leftist like Petro who believes in alleviating poverty and corruption in Colombia is "like" a military propped up dictator who believes in lining his own pockets and the rest of the population of Venezuela be damned. I don't think they are even remotely similar.

    Actually he doesn't take office until August. For now Colombia still has Duque as its president. And no not like in Venezuela, the situation there is quite different. Petro is more like a Bernie Sanders than a Maduro. Hopefully the exchange rate will go to 4500 now. We will see what happens in the coming months.
