COLUMN: IN AN INTERVIEW, PERU'S ALAN GARCIA TELLS ME HE WILL SUPPORT FREE TRADE

LIMA, Peru -- Judging from what President-elect Alan García told me in a one-hour interview last week, he will not be the radical leftist populist he was during his first term in the late '80s: On the contrary, he says he wants to go ahead with a free-trade deal with the United States and follow Chile's example in actively seeking new investments. Read the column. I will post the Spanish-language transcript of the interview separately.

What is a radical leftist? In the US, Alan Garcia would surely qualify as such.

Does a radical leftist really seek to discourage foreign investment like you say? Or do they simply realize that partnering with foreign capital is the best way to optimize resources?

Same with the so-called free trade agreement. According to your interview, Garcia seems likely to
seek ammendments to any trade agreement with the US. Like Mr. Garcia says the Latin countries are at an unfair disadvantage in areas like agriculture, where the US maintains huge subisides and advantages in technology. So called radicals like Chavez (and myself) merely want to be able to plan, to think, to maximize any agreement with Europe or the US. Chavez belief in Mercosur, in a united South America, is that only that can garner the highest benefits in trade.

If the US does not abide by many free trade tenets, why can't Latin America also strategize? Oh yeah, because that is "radical leftist" thinking, which is must be demonized at all cost.

That's strange.That wasn't what I read a week ago in a Peruvian newspaper.
Alan Garcia promised
his people not to support the
U.S free trade agreement.

Foreign investment is good,but as long it comes from Asia or Europe or any region that does not
politically meddle thru its
embassy.
The problem with US free agreement is the text itself.It is nothing more than a juridical machine to
open the doors to American economic domination in Latin America.
Besides,the american investors unlike other investors like their
CIA/Embassy to intervene when there is any political problems in
the latin american country.
And that is a threat to us who
live here.
We do not want to be influenced
by foreign investors that
happened to want a X candidate
just because it is fair or american friendly?

We do not like investors like that.
All Businesses are risky but
american businessmen not only
want to make business ,they also
want to influence Latin America's
polititics.
And that is what I consider very wrong.
