ABSTRACT
South American countries have been experimenting with regional free trading blocs with some promising results. The Southern Common Market (MERCOSUR), consisting of Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, and Paraguay, with Chile and Bolivia as associate members, constitutes the fourth largest integrated regional market in the world after NAFTA, the EC, and Japan. Although U.S. and other foreign companies remain wary about the region's economic and political volatility, MERCOSUR might be a cautious way to enter South American markets.
