9/11 Narco States & Neoliberalism w/ Christy Thorton

September 11, 2017

On today’s show Christy Thornton (@llchristyll), Fellow in Global History at Harvard University, joins us to discuss Mexico, neoliberalism and the drug war. What the disappearance of 43 teaching students and subsequent lying about the disappearances by the Mexican government has to do with Mexican politics and President Pena Nieto. What is the political spectrum like in Mexico? Mexico’s corruption and movements responding to them. What role did Nafta play in exacerbating the drug cartel problem.

On the fun half – Hillary on why she lost, Bannon “declares War” on the GOP, update from a Florida listener, and your calls and IMs.
