Bobby Peru don't come up for air.

Yet neither country will cede just a tiny strip of land to give Bolivia back its access to the Pacific.

Just revise what constitutes 'poverty level' in your country.  It's so simple, anyone can do it.

They've also been riding high on their drinking water exports.

If it really mattered to Bolivia, I am sure Chile would let them lease port fascilities. Its just desert anyway.

Are we not counting Brazil as "Latin America" for these purposes? I mean, it's great for Peru and all, but they've got a long way to go.

//they're not even that close to Mexico yet.

Yup, raise minimum wage, bring more people within the 10% of poverty level, and wait that shiat doesn't work

Thanks Fartbongo!

Exactly. Don't assume that their definition of poverty is anything like your definition.

If I had to invest in one country in the region, it would be Chile.  They've really got their act together.

It is a MUCH bigger deal than that.  Bolivia is (with some justification) still teed off about a 19th-century war that cut it off from the ocean. They still maintain an admiral as if they had an ocean-going navy.  They're pretty upset.

I would assume that 100% of Peru is "poor" based on the USA standard.

You know, if they bought a nuclear carrier, they wouldn't ever need to dock.

I suggest a kickstarter.

Peru has better food, Chile better infrastructure. Colombia better women, and well Bolivia has over 300 varieties of potatos.

Es.

wife and I were in Lima a couple years ago and the food was unbelieveable

Damn straight about the Peruvian food.  It is awesome!  My Fiancee is peruvian and the foods that she produces out of the kitchen are astounding.  Aji de gallina, lomo saltado, Ceviche, etc...  The list is endless!  Great, now I am hungry...

Peru also has great chinese restaurants.

Chile has pretty awful food except for completos. Chileans are the English of South America when it comes to cuisine. I still remember when I stayed with Argentinos in Chile and had some of their barbecue. HOLY LORD, the Argentines know how to cook meat.

I wonder how much their rise can be attributed to the quinoa craze.  Peru thanks you, health nuts and women in stretchy yoga pants on fad diets!

We better assassinate someone quick or a latin American country might be seen as successful.
Can't have that.
Ask Granada how that low poverty and high literacy worked out for them.

Funny enough lowering poverty is also why the Shining Path is no longer a major issue. And all it took was some pieces of paper. The problem in Peru was there were thousands of people farming land that they didn't have title to, no one had title to it. Giving the people title to the land they farmed allowed them to do things like get loans for improved equipment, it also gave them legal standing. That was enough to get them to tell the Shining Path to go fark itself.

Misread that as "Peru revives 100-year old dispute" and was disappointed when I realized there wasn't going to be a Patrick O'Brian slugfest between Chilean 22-gun frigates and Peruvian 12-gun sloops.

The only picture I could find on GIS was Fronch dressing, and I didn't want to go dig out my DVD just so I could find "Peru"
