The article focuses on the impact of the election of Rafael Correa as president of Ecuador on the country's relation with the U.S. In late 2006, Ecuador elected a leftist president, Rafael Correa, who is making a career of denouncing oil corporations, banks and Americans. In the U.S. politicians are having second thoughts about promoting free trade with Latin America. The five-year-old law allowing in duty free many categories of imports from Ecuador is set to expire in February, and might well not be renewed.
