Why is Guyana the world’s fastest growing economy?

Listen to this podcast for in-depth Latin American news, politics and history in English.

The IMF predicted one of South America’s smallest countries would see the highest level of economic growth in the world in 2020. In this episode of ¿Pero Por Qué?, we cover Guyana’s history (as well as a little about its neighbours, French Guiana and Suriname) and discuss how this huge increase in income could affect the country.
