Latin America's Underclass Isn't Feeling The Reforms

Although I found your article "Latin America" (Cover Story, June 15) thorough and, for the most part, balanced, I wonder if there isn't something missing. While you do make mention of the various potholes that exist along the road to free markets and neoliberal capitalism, you don't convey an accurate sense of either the desperate plight of Latin America's vast underclass, which remains largely untouched by the bounty of this economic "renaissance" or the adamant opposition these supposedly "enlightened" reforms continue to face.
