Cuaderno Latinoamericano - Ginger Thompson, of the New York Times, reports on the approaching ten year mark of NAFTA and what this will mean in terms of the removal of the last vestiges of Mexican tariffs on US Agricultural imports. James Dao, also of the NYT, writes on the fate of Otto Reich as Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs. The Washington Post reports on US Social Security funds working their way down to Mexico. Hugh Dellios, of the Chicago Tribune, takes up the subject of loan schemes in Costa Rica that take advantage of US expats and retirees. The LA Times has a wonderful commentary on the current Venezuelan crisis and the difficulties it poses for US policy towards that important oil-producing country.
