This article discusses the inflation in Latin America. There has long been a belief in the United States that better management techniques are developed during tough times, economic depressions, extreme competition, and shortage of resources. Such could be the case in Latin America. Planning is carried out quite differently in inflation-ridden Latin America than is described in standard U.S. textbooks. Perhaps the greatest single problem area with respect to cash flow in an inflationary environment lies in credit and collections. In spite of the chronic cash-flow crunch that exists in Latin America as a result of inflation, companies occasionally find themselves with an excess of local currency.
