Lo que está pasando en Venezuela no es un golpe de Estado. La Asamblea Nacional y su actual líder Guaidó son totalmente legítimos, y tienen la ley y la Constitución de su lado. Lo que está menos claro, sin embargo, es cuánto poder tienen realmente. En las próximas semanas, eso se pondrá a prueba.
Both [Bolsonaro and Macri] agree that Mercosur should be a more flexible bloc, where countries have the freedom to negotiate free trade agreements with third countries instead of negotiating together as they have done so far, despite the resistance of industries in both countries.
It's likely the meeting [between Bolsonaro and Macri] will focus on trade issues, because politically the differences between the ultra-conservative Bolsonaro and the liberal Macri are huge.
We’re at a low point for Latin American integration. The region is more fragmented than ever. It’s not that countries are going to the left or to the right. They’re just going the wrong way. The problem is, as multilateralism weakens, so does Latin America.
Es difícil predecir lo que sigue [en Venezuela], pero sería un error subestimar la longevidad del régimen. Con una oposición débil y fragmentada no existe aún la suficiente presión para una transición negociada. Maduro sigue desafiante y al parecer decidido a hacer lo que sea para mantenerse en el poder.
Para Maduro se cierra el margen de maniobra para gobernar, con una situación interna económica y social en deterioro y un aislamiento regional y global que va en aumento, pero que todavía cuenta con apoyos como el de Rusia, China y Turquía. 
It is risky to predict 2019 will mark the end of Maduro’s authoritarian rule. Some have been saying his days are numbered since he came to power nearly six years ago. For various reasons, he has proven to be more resilient than many expected.
Count me as one of the skeptics that [Bolsonaro saying he would be open to discussing establishing U.S. military bases in Brazil to contain Russian interference in Venezuela] is going to amount to more than theater and rhetoric. They may do a lot of posturing and grandstanding together that will make them feel good and tough and like powerful guys. But what does that amount to in the end? I don’t know that this is the kind of romance that leads to anything concrete.
