The Spanish speaking world has about 450 million speakers. So that's 29,000$ per capita - like Malaysia or Hungary. That is nothing so extraordinary.
I think learning Spanish is inflated because of that figure of all Spanish speakers around the world. But one has to take into account how many people will seriously ever go to South America for living, vacation or whatsoever? Same goes for French. Will somebody ever go to Sub Saharan Africa?
Tons? You do know it's not all kidnap and murder, right?
If I worked in a multinational and it offered me to be transferred to Latin America I would definitely consider it depending on the salary and the place.

She comes out with something astounding and then just stares at you like, 'What did I say?' But then she'll have that glint in her eye."
