Controversy in Honduras and the impact of Japanese emigrants on Latin America provide the twin themes this week on Latin Pulse. Next week, Honduras is set to inaugurate Juan Orlando Hernandez as the country's new president. But questions about the fall election that brought Hernandez to office linger, along with concerns about violence and further militarization of the country. The program also looks at how generations of Japanese emigrants have left their mark on Brazil, Peru and other parts of the region. The news segment of the program provides an update on drug violence in the Mexican state of Michoacan.
The program includes interviews with:
Alex Main of the Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR); and
Dan Masterson of the U.S. Naval Academy.
Executive Producer: Rick Rockwell; and
Associate Producer: Megan Ekhaml.
