Historical Note

The Agencia Interamericana de Prensa Económica (AIPE) was a Spanish-language press agency, based in Boca Raton, Florida, managed by Venezuelan-American journalist Carlos A. Ball M. Launched in April 1991 by Ball, it offered weekly sets of columns to Spanish-language newspapers, magazines, and websites throughout Latin America, the U.S., and Spain, until it ceased operation in June 2010. AIPE editor Ball was director general of El Diario de Caracas and authored two books on liberty, democracy and corruption before coming to the United States in 1987. A member of the Mont Pèlerin Society since 1986, he graduated with an MBA from Boston University, and served as an adjunct scholar at the Cato Institute.

Scope and Content of Collection

Paper and computer disk versions of articles, relating to political and economic conditions in Latin America, and especially to free market reforms in Latin America. Includes indexes.
Included in this collection are 8,788 Spanish-language newspaper commentaries (op-eds) written between 1991 and mid-2010 by 734 authors for the Agencia Interamericana de Prensa Económica (AIPE). Most of the authors are prominent classical liberal analysts from some twenty countries, mainly in Latin America though several are Hoover Institution fellows. The op-eds constitute a running commentary on economic and political developments throughout the region--and to a lesser degree the world--during almost two decades that saw (1) the rise and in many ways retreat of the "Washington Consensus," (2) significant improvements in the monetary and other policies in some countries, (3) several good recent years for some countries in GDP growth, in large part because of greatly increased exports of natural resources and commodities from South America, particularly to China, and (4) the emergence of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and his authoritarian populist "twenty-first-century socialism." This latter regime and "socialism" won the backing of several Latin American governments and many individuals and marks a democratically chosen retreat from market economies and enhancement of paternalism that has deep roots in Hispanic culture.
