In this assignment, you are required to compare two different countries and the geographical impacts of the broader scale changes that are occurring. You may choose countries like Colombia and Mexico that have not been so quick to embrace the anti-globalization stance now common throughout the region and how one of them compares to more aggressively transforming countries like Venezuela or Bolivia. I suggest that you select 2 countries that are of most interest to you as I’m sure they will have quite a bit to discuss. You must choose at least two themes to use as a basis for comparison.
