The economy of Guatemala is the most advanced and progressive in Central America, That picture is a market for a nation of poor people, if you want to write a good article about the economy, could add a photo of the City which is one of the most modern in the world even, or one of the sites of Guatemala, thanks... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 06:19, 15 July 2009 (UTC)
You don't have any knowledge about economics either social politics. Wan't to know countries in Central America with better economic perspectives? What about Panama or Costa Rica? They have the double GDP per capita, HDI, etc. And no, because Guatemala City have one or two nice high-class neighbourhoods, doesn't mean that it a modern city.
the 2009 food shortage affected only 1 region, not the entire country, and was not as important as the article makes it to be. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 15:47, 6 October 2010 (UTC)
I think this page need to be updated and more information needs to be added. Although it is a small country, there is so much to talk about this beautiful country. 1993jl (talk) 20:57, 2 December 2014 (UTC)
I would like to add different things to this article. I would like to add the precious work indigenous women do in Guatemala and the exploitation of them. Although they make beautiful things, they are exploited and they cannot overcome poverty. I am also going to add the relationship between the US and Guatemala and at the same time I am going to update some information to keep it up to date. I will be using the following citations for the improvement of article. "Country Intelligence: Report: Guatemala." Guatemala Country Monitor (2013): 1-18. Business Source Premier. Web. 2 Dec. 2014.

I really like the ideas you have for this article! I feel that besides women exploitation, children work is another topic you could address that relates to the women labor. A section of the impact that CAFTA has had in Guatemala would be really interesting if the article is lacking this information. Besides this your contributions look really interesting I am looking forward on looking at your additions to this interesting article.1993jl
