Another Sign of Shifting Power in the Global Economy

Latin American migrants who moved to Spain for opportunities are returning to Latin America in an attempt to flee the weak European economies. Though they moved to Europe due to its potential for better wages and economic stability, recent developments in the European union and the uncertain financial situation of so-called “first world” countries since 2008 has made that move increasingly risky, even while Latin American economies are booming. That migrants are looking to their homelands in Latin America, and not Europe, in hopes of financial gain and stability is just one more sign of how much the times have changed both in Latin America and in Europe in the early-21st century.
