A regional investment agreement for Latin America

This page in:

Nancy Lee, a visiting fellow at the Center for Global Development, calls for a regional investment agreement for Latin America in an online Q&A posted today. She argues that a regional investment agreement would work much like free trade agreements, with member countries setting common standards to reduce barriers to investment. How could you measure whether members are complying with these standards? Lee argues that comparable data on things like the costs of starting a business and the strength of creditor rights would do the trick.
