Lima’s Economy Is Positively Booming

Once the centerpiece of Spain’s South American empire — by royal decree all commerce of the vice-royalty had to pass through it — Lima was the keystone of its trade network integrating America, Europe and the Far East. Traces of that prosperity can still be seen in the city’s crowded streets of colorful Baroque mansions juxtaposed with modern high-rises and leafy, Parisian-like boulevards. And now the economy is resurging again. Having recovered from political instability, epidemics, juntas, inflation and earthquakes, Peru’s capital city today represents a dynamic metropolis re-emerging as a powerhouse of the Pacific.
