[INFOGRAPHIC] Latin America continues economic downslide as Argentina, Brazil & Venezuela confront internal crises

Latin America’s  growth will be even lower this year than 2014’s lackluster estimate. In fact, our panel of analysts slashed their projections on weaker economic activity in key regional players.

Forecasts for Argentina, Brazil and Venezuela were cut substantially this month due to a variety of internal factors including, the holdouts case in Argentina, the Petrobras scandal in Brazil and Venezuela’s erratic economic policy. 

Currently, major Latin American currencies are resting near multi-year lows, reflecting low commodity prices, deteriorating economic prospects and growing speculation that the interest rate increase in the U.S. will take place sooner than expected.
