Transcript of Effects of the Monroe Doctrine in Latin America

Effects of the Monroe Doctrine All Over the World What was the Monroe Doctrine? The Monroe Doctrine was first presented by President James Monroe, and it stated as follows:
- The European nations could no longer form colonies or influence the newly independized Latin American Countries.
- Any intent of colonization in Latin America or young nations is a direct attack to the United States and therefore it will respond to it as so.
- And that the U.S. will not intervene in European Conflicts. What nations did it affect? Spain Portugal United States United Kingdom France Panama El Salvador Peru Colombia Argentina Mexico Bolivia Venezuela Costa Rica Brazil Chile Russia president JAMES MONROE Gran Colombia Central American Provinces What effects did the Monroe Doctrine have? Overarching Question Economy This map shows what the eonomy in Latin America looks like today. The country with the highest numbers is Mexico, which is right south of the United States. United States: 309 mill. (estimate)
U$S 46,716 Government Effects in Latin America As the map shows, most of Latin America presents a Democratic form of government.
The only countries which do not have such, are ones held by Britain in 1823. Effects on the United States View Power Bringing on the role of big brother of Latin America, the U.S. soon became a world power.
It was involved in many conflicts in the young countries including Chile and Argentina, Haiti, and Cuba. But with the power came the views. It must be noticed that many Latin Americans viewed the U.S. as a bully sticking its nose into others business. They thought this way because many of these countries were weak, poor, and living under miserable governments. Effects in Europe By the early 1800's, many Spanish-speaking nations had gained independence frome Spain, including Mexico, Argentina, Gran Colombia (wich would later become Colombia, Ecuador, Panama, and Venezuela), Peru, Paraguay, the United Provinces of Central America (Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Costa Rica). However, Spain still held some colonies such as Bolivia and Uruguay.
This became a problem because Spain wanted its territory back so it was making alliances with France and Portuga (who had recently lost Brazil) to regain power. SPAIN PORTUGAL In 1822, the Portugese Crown lost the colony of Brazil peacefully. However, they did not want it to stay that way. Also wanted their American colonies back. UNITED KINGDOM It helped create a closer relationship between the U.S. and the U.K. and being on the U.S.'s side, they gaied privileges, territory, and a lot of trade. Also, many countries that were young at the time when the Monroe Doctrine was introduced, have constitutions similar to that of the U.S. The Mexican Constitution of 1824, for example, was so much alike the U.S.'s that Ponciano Arriaga, one fo the drafters of the Mexican Constitution of 1857, said that the two sources of inspiration for the Mexican constitution were as follows, the French Revolution "and for the political
organization of the Republic... the Constitution of the United States." "It is commonly regarded as an epitome of the principles of the United States with respect to its attitude toward all the American States in their political relations to the rest of the world." What was the purpose of the Monroe Doctrine? Three principles: stop European influence in the Americas, non-intervention, and non-colonization.
