Assistance "for development" occupied an important role in U.S. foreign policy toward Latin America, especially since the Cuban revolution. These programs promoted by the private sector and the U.S. government, responding to specific interests seldom mentioned level of official discourse. This article will explore the possible interest linked to attendance, as well as the link between economic assistance and support for the "safety", doing a tour in the role of care from the Cold War to the present. This takes up declassified State Department, the Department of State Bulletin, official documentation (statistics and programs) and statements by officials of the United States and Latin America.

Keywords : American relations; USAID; economic assistance; military assistance.
