The economic improvement and well-being of Latin America has been debated for decades and will continue to be if no significant change is made. An integration of Latin American countries has the potential to benefit the region economically, politically and socially. Free trade unions would help to increase competition and innovation, allowing the average consumer to purchase better quality products at lower prices, thus overall driving economic growth. These changes would increase social welfare and increase the standard of living for the citizens of participating countries. This agreement could take the form similar to that of the current European Union which would help foster foreign investment. Many Latin American countries would thrive from foreign investment so showing unity between the nations to help strengthen their economies could give foreign investors more faith in gaining a return from their investment. It would also help curb worries of corruption and unstable political situations. Overall, the integration of the Latin American countries to form a cooperative economy could help some of the weaker economies improve and the stronger economies maintain their economic capabilities.
