Economic and political reforms in Mexico are the centerpieces of analysis on Latin Pulse this week. The program also covers new violence and concerns over the security situation in Mexico. The analysis spends considerable timing assessing the first year in office of President Enrique Pena Nieto. The program also includes a repeat of interviews on Mexico and U.S policy to mark the passing of Robert Pastor, former U.S. National Security Advisor for Latin America and the Caribbean. During those retrospective discussions the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and U.S. policy with Venezuela provide the central themes.
The program includes interviews with:
Duncan Wood of the Wilson Center; and an archival interview with
the late Robert Pastor, formerly of American University.
Executive Producer: Rick Rockwell; and
Associate Producer: Megan Ekhaml.
