This study examines the prospects for the FTAA in light of recent economic and political turmoil in Latin America and the continuing impasse over US fast track authority. It surveys regional interests in the wide-ranging negotiating agenda and assesses the readiness of countries to participate in a hemisphere-wide free trade zone (based on updated readiness indicators originally developed by Hufbauer and Schott in their 1994 study, Western Hemisphere Economic Integration).
