Can Mexico Get its Act Together?

Video de la presentación del libro de Jorge G. Castañeda, "Mañana Forever? Mexico and the Mexicans" organizada por Zócalo Public Square en Los Ángeles, el 3 de junio de 2011.Mexico is a study in paradoxes: Its people are often defensive toward foreigners while the country draws much of its revenue from tourism. Its government has a reputation for being conflict-adverse, yet drug violence is spiraling out of control. The country has a conflicted relationship with the United States even as it becomes more integrated into the North American economy. Jorge Castañeda, a Mexico City native who was educated in Princeton and Paris and served as Mexico’s foreign minister from 2000 to 2003, has a unique vantage point from which to examine where his native country is headed. In his new book, Mañana Forever? Mexico and the Mexicans, he paints a picture of a nation at a crossroads. Castañeda visits Zócalo to discuss possible futures for Mexico.
