As individuals in an increasingly global society heavily dependent on international trade, it is important to learn and understand, from a historical perspective, the significant contributions that individual countries make for the benefit of others.MoreAs individuals in an increasingly global society heavily dependent on international trade, it is important to learn and understand, from a historical perspective, the significant contributions that individual countries make for the benefit of others. For almost two centuries, as a result of close economic and security ties, the United States and Panama have had such a special relationship. This book presents some of the most significant economic contributions Panama has made to the United States, since before the California Gold Rush to the expansion of the Panama Canal, including current efforts to develop Panama as a mining hub, and the ongoing efforts to convert Panama into one of the most important centers of technology and logistics in the world for facilitating the movement of people, goods and services in pursuit of greater profits and capital accumulation, and as a base for sustaining military and political power in the world.
