Since his election, President Barack Obama has been courting nations in Latin America, pledging an “equal partnership” on issues such as the global economic crisis, energy and climate change and public safety.

Brookings expert Mauricio Cárdenas, director of the Latin America Initiative at Brookings, and Fred Barbash, senior editor of Politico, took questions on U.S.-Latin America relations in this edition of the Scouting Report.
