From 1910, when many of their Latin American cousins were establishing their own national autonomy and identity, the United States, through government policy, military might and business interference protected their own interests and sustained the balance of power their way. This paper explores how the United States dealt with three of their Latin American neighbors: Mexico, Argentina and Nicaragua. It conducts an analysis of U.S. involvement on Mexican, Argentine and Nicaraguan territory and affairs and discusses how this interference manifested through U.S. government and military policy, exports and business interests. This paper explores each of the aforementioned Latin American countries separately.

From the Paper:

"Argentina experienced a similar type of relationship with the United States, not unlike Mexico. From 1913 to 1929, the foreign trade value increased threefold. Argentine natives could purchase more foreign-produced material per capita than the U.S. In 1920, total Argentina-U.S. trade rose to $421 million. From 1914 to 1919, Argentina experienced a positive balance of trade. From 1921 to 1929, total trade volume performed better than two billion dollars but Argentina experienced a trade deficit with the US. The share of US trade with Argentina was rising while Britain's percentage was falling."
