Roger Thayer Stone Center For Latin American Studies

Tulane University

History

Economy, Technology and Information Exchange is another area that the Stone Center will develop in partnership with the Payson Center for International Development and Technology Transfer, the Freeman School of Business, the School of Engineering, and the School of Public Health. Its members will focus on pressing issues brought about by the revolutions in technology, communication, and education that so profoundly influence governments, economies, and non-state actors on a global scale. The massive transfers of information, technology, and capital among Latin American nations and global actors produce dramatic new challenges as society must address the problem of the vast differences that exist between the industrialized and developing worlds.
