The Women in Energy Roundatble at AEC African Energy Week 2023 highlighted the impact of women in the industry.

I echoed the remarks from my new friend Oluseyi Afolabi:

“… there is a need for maximizing value addition in local content development in projects rollout…”

Let’s multiply the value of local capabilities so that the African region can achieve #energyprosperity.

Note: I’m going to start using positive words to manifest positive outcomes. Try it!

Latin America’s golden decade in the 2000s: What fueled the economic boom, and can the region recover from recent stagnation?

It’s been said a million times, but we’re just going to bring it up again: in 1913, on the eve of the outbreak of World War I, Argentina was one of the 10 wealthiest countries in the world in terms of per-capita income, with Switzerland and the United States as peers and Southern European countries like Italy and Spain in the rearview mirror.

Yes, you read that right. Argentina was richer than its former colonial overlord, and Italians came to Buenos Aires by the boatload, hoping to find better lives than back home in their recently-unified country.

And Latin America overall has done quite well for itself in the past century, particularly when compared to other developing regions worldwide. It’s only in recent years that per-capita gross domestic product (GDP) has stagnated, with major recessions in Brazil, Argentina, and Venezuela since 2014 doing their part to drive the decrease.

Contrast this story with China, which as late as the turn of the century had a per-capita GDP numbering at less than a quarter of the Latin American average. Between 2005 and 2015, the East Asian superpower closed the gap and even surpassed Latin America by this metric.

However, it is worth mentioning that, as we’ve discussed before, China’s runaway economic success and massive domestic demand powered Latin America’s golden decade in the 2000s, explaining in part that huge increase seen in the region between 2003 and 2014.

Furthermore, the result does depend a bit on the comparison. We mention China given last week’s look at the world’s largest economies, but the other major emerging Asian superpower, India, has quite a ways to go to catch up with Latin America. India’s GDP today, when divided up by its staggering population (the world’s largest), shakes out to less than $3K per person—far below the nearly $10K seen in the Latin American average.

Finally, we do want to raise the question of distribution. Dividing a country’s GDP by its population may be effective in giving a rough overview of how it’s faring, but it doesn’t take into consideration inequalities which may keep most of the wealth concentrated in only some hands. Trying to keep this in mind while also reversing the past decade’s poor performance won’t be easy, but it’s necessary all the same.

“Between Brazil’s easternmost and westernmost points, there’s an astonishing distance of around 4.2 thousand kilometers.  That’s a similar distance between Casablanca, Morocco, and Moscow.  With an area of 8.5 million square kilometers, Brazil is almost as big as Western Europe, which has an area of 10.2 million square kilometers.”
