Is China's sphere of influence extending into Latin America? Dee Smith of the Strategic Insight Group, Elizabeth Economy of the Council on Foreign Relations and Christopher Sabatini of Columbia University outline the extent to which China is expanding its operations — and by so doing, courting both allies and pariahs of the United States. Should America view this as a direct threat, or is China simply extending the reach of its Belt and Road initiative in order to maintain essential raw material supply chains?
