Bolivia's sad and turbulent history continues to repeat itself. The coca boom of today has replaced the tin boom of the last century, which in turn supplanted the exploitation of silver and other precious metals during the colonial period. And as in the past, Bolivia's export-based economy continues to depend on foreigners for everything from bank loans to economic advisers.
