Yesterday’s podcast, and a 10th anniversary

Wednesday, March 12th, 2014

Yesterday I had the pleasure and the honor of being in Silvio Canto’s podcast with Miguel Portillo-Cuadra talking about Elections in El Salvador plus other US-Latin America issues.

Updating, the ARENA party requests that the election results be annulled (link in Spanish).

Yesterday was also Fausta’s Blog’s 10th birthday, which I celebrated at the podcast. I had initially started blogging on local issues but over time turned to what really interests me, Latin American politics.

March 11th was also the 10th anniversary of the Atocha train station bombing in Madrid. Barcepundit has a list of all the people who died.

An eyewitness account of yesterday’s rally, Day of protest #15,
and an appraisal and forecast from the always excellent Diplomad, Venezuela: Slow Motion Coup Engenders Slow Motion Implosion

The now undeniable crisis in Venezuela–Maduro can spin it however he wants, nobody is buying his story anymore–is immensely serious and will have ramifications throughout the region. We are going to see the start of the disintegration of the ALBA network, an alliance of countries bought off by Venezuela’s money and Chavez’s undeniable leadership skills, and major social upheavals in those countries as the madness of leftist economics finds that it can deny economic realities only for so long. We are seeing the development of an “arc of instability” in the region that will seriously affect much of the Caribbean, including Cuba, as well as Nicaragua, Ecuador, Bolivia, and Brazil, and will have lesser but not negligible effects on Paraguay and Peru. Those countries such as Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica, and Chile which kept their minds and eyes clear, and their economic policies sensible and adult will be much less affected and, in fact, will provide the economic hope for the region.
