Peru wasn't a democratic country until 1980 and has been under democratic leadership since (Facts about Peru). The economy is completely two different economies, the Coastal and Andes regions are the two that split. The Coastal regions are the same as any other modern economy and operates as one, however, the Andes are different. Andres area is a more traditional economy that relies on subsistence farming and trade among the residents (Shields 29). "In terms of GDP per capita – a measure of each citizen's share of the wealth generated by the economy- Peru ranked eighth among Latin American countries" (Shields 29).

Corruption will unfortunately continue to be a reality for many communities throughout the region as we transition into the 21st century. The Iguala mass kidnapping was a brutal example of what authorities are willing to do to suppress potential political adversaries (Vice News 2014). If we look to the past, an obvious link can be made to Peru's age of terror, where thousands we killed or disappeared because they were seen as a political threat (Dawson 2011). While Iguala kidnapping was just as terrifying, what is different now is the presence of technology. The advent and proliferation of cell phones and the World Wide Web during the last decade of the 20th century and into the 21st has given the average civilian the power to reach out into

Like many other countries in Latin America and across the globe, Peru is no stranger to the economic and social impacts of illicit drug trade. However, unlike most other countries in the region like Colombia, Peru does not experience a high rate or organized crime or violence surrounding the drug trade.
