Latin Pulse: 11.30.2012

This week Latin Pulse returns with a focus on Mexico and the man elected to lead that nation for the next six years:  Enrique Peña Nieto.  The program looks deeply at politics in Mexico including the history of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI, by its Spanish acronym) and prospects for how that party will help Peña Nieto govern a country confronted by the challenges of corruption and the violent Drug War. The program also discussed Peña Nieto's visit to Washington, D.C. this week and how the administration of President Barack Obama will respond to this leadership change in Mexico.

In-depth interviews include:

Eric Olson of the Wilson Center;
Dr. John Ackerman of the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico (UNAM).

Executive Producer: Rick Rockwell
Associate Producer: Curt Devine
