Hispanic Americans' Core Values Are Stronger Than Ever
"When you look at Latin America? You look at the history of our hemisphere, do these families, whether they're from Mexico, Guatemala, anywhere else, is it true that they really have when it comes to the role of men and women, children, education, work ethic. Do they have a conservative culture to begin with? And if that is the case, why have they voted Democrat or not been politically engaged for so very, very long? I absolutely love your question because I can definitely give you some insight in the audience about what that looks like. Look, honestly, the core values you just mentioned about family. And I'm going to add to that. The pro life pause in the Hispanic community to protect the unborn life is stronger than ever. You know, so much so that on March 9th Guatemala, the nation of Guatemala declared itself in a ceremony with their president and key pastors from the country to basically declare that Guatemala is the pro family pro life capital of ibero America, which are all the Spanish speaking nations of the world. So with a statement at that level, nilsa, I didn't see that on the cover of The New York Times or I didn't see a story in CNN about that. Oh, well, surely on Univision, oh wait, not there either. Surely on telemundo oh wait, it didn't make it there either as well. You know, it's crazy that not only is the conservative movement censored on mainstream national television channels, but in the Hispanic networks as well.
Price of Oil Surges Upwards of $120 per Barrel
"We see today that the price of oil continues to surge upwards of a $120 a barrel now we're looking at with the expectation that by summer, by summer, I've predicted a $150 oil, possibly 200, it could even go higher than that because for whatever reason, we had all this intelligence allegedly that this was going to happen. The Intel department did a good job on that. So where was everybody else? Why wasn't anybody else thinking through the energy implications? Why wasn't anybody thinking about what this would mean for everyday Americans at the gas pumps? That's my question. Because there are ways to solve this in part drill right here in the United States of America, I'd also be looking at Canada, it also be looking at Latin America. We've got a western hemisphere with lots of oil and lots of natural gas and we should be getting it all right here as close to home as possible with ourselves dependent on ourselves and our domestic sources. Why didn't someone think that one through? Why were they out there pitching? Green energy, when they had intelligence that indicated Putin was going to be invading Ukraine and we had to have known where we're going to sanction Putin. We had to know we were going to sanction Russia and Russian energy. So why didn't anybody make a push for more domestic sources of energy knowing all this was going to happen?
John Zmirak: 'Donald Trump Should Broker Peace in Ukraine'
"John's Muir. Welcome to the program. Thank you, Eric. Andy Kaufman, you sing here I've come to say the day. Exactly. That was actually that was my email. Yes. Mighty mouse is dead. It's tough. Listen on the glue trap. You've been writing a lot of a lot of stuff about the Ukraine. So the piece that you posted yesterday, brilliant concept. Let's start with that headline. Yeah, Donald Trump should broker peace in Ukraine. Donald Trump. Now, not a joke. No. I have a 100% serious. And it's not just because on some level he ought really to be president because he actually got more electoral votes and more popular votes. And the deep states stole the race in the most squalid Latin American style. And then covering it up in silence people in Eastern European totalitarian style. I mean, that's there. But really, I'm not being cynical. I don't want to use what's happening in Ukraine just for cheap domestic political gain. But I do think it will be good for America and good for Trump and good for all of us. As well. As for the people of Ukraine and the people of Russia. Because both populations matter. But before you just get into the details, are you, I mean, is it really possible that a former U.S. president could do something like this under who's a car is that work? Jimmy Carter flew around the world brokering negotiations after he was out of office. Jimmy Carter went Africa, Latin America. He had his own peace foundation. But he didn't need the permission of the U.S. government to do that. He just went and did it. That's right. And Donald Trump can do the same thing. And there is this thing called the Logan act that was used to intimidate and blackmail general Michael Flynn. But it is unconstitutional. No one has ever been successfully prosecuted under the Logan act. The Logan act was passed in something like 1801, and it was directed, I think, against Thomas Jefferson. It was in, I think. It was intended to stop Americans from engaging in diplomacy without the permission of the U.S. government.
How Russia Is Keeping NATO Together
"Do you think NATO is ready? Does Joe Biden have a plan? It's hard to say what Joe Biden's plan is. But I think that Biden is at least been clear about NATO that America retains its resolve to abide by its treaty obligations to NATO and that the NATO nations will step up and protect every square inch of NATO territory. I've been encouraged by the fact that rather than divide NATO, which I'm sure Latin America Putin and president she thought would happen. NATO is actually coming together in a more strong we've seen Russians I'm sorry we've seen Russia actually consolidate Nate that went away that I wasn't

Gimme the reaction so that was huge for everybody in the house but it was not that something that you can replace you know because we already like having a diet with a lot of vegetables with grains beings in you know but we didn't replace for anything but it was like a subtly like just had to stop and people when i moved from the house when i was living with my parents when they when mood they were able to eat in they go back to eat at normally.

Maybe you were mad at them when you cook because your anger was into the food when you like made it for them but when i cook for my partner who loves spicy but can't handle my level of spy sometimes or now that i'm home often when i cook for my mom and her husband. They don't eat a lot of salt anymore. They are older and the begun at the beka is. It's not it's not good for them.

But that's for me is the big one. Is the the salt one. But mainly is the the amount of spice that goes into it.

And my mother chee-chen need we'd babies just because of the flavor and just very recently. I learned that if you cook meat. We need these easier to digest. So there's all these traditions that we follow because we were taught and then it turns out that the reuther the recently is not only flavor but also like medicine all kind of approach.

"Of hispanic heritage month. Today we're celebrating florida's latin american food cultures were sharing an excerpt from a conversation titled food memories of latin america. This discussion was part of conversations in the neighborhood. Let's talk about food. Which was a discussion series presented by florida humanities the university of florida's center for the humanities and the public sphere and the city of gainesville. We'll hear from educators activists and home cooks about how their latin american heritage influences. The way they eat. We've edited the conversation for length and clarity. Macy was born in katie. She was four point here. Finally to the dominican republic at age ten. They moved to the. Us they've all. Grandfather was cuban. Lindsey identifies as black african american and latino and. She's now a you have student mariano. Three regis is a feminist at least from reseal. She's part of the of the league vacillate list. Because i just finished a master's degree in latin american studies that you have. And she's also part of the edgy. Bt coalition that operates within your organization of american states. Doctor cecelia swazis c. c. eastern a c central figure in the department of agriculture education and communication mighty said. I was born in cuba and raised in the united states. She's a professional writer. Lecture untraditional Cook so the first question is what is the relationship between the food you eat and your identity wonder we begin with you. Thank you as the saying goes. You are what you eat. And i believe that there are two ways in which that rings to to i. Food is what connects to our memories of home. A family to the memories of took place would be an astronaut concept or could be very green space and everyth- officially important to me to us as we are part of a diaspora in aid. Hips was grounded in our roots. I need you this Something in common with community and he'd reminds us of our mother culture in where we came from. So it's that connection safely. I think on the other hand that What we eat our habits our behavior stores fluid. Are i think a reflection of our guarany of our experiences through life and whatever we are doing with foot lead what we trump four and so on at any even timing our lives. It's reflection of where we are in our yearning. Thank you wenda leniency. What is the relationship between the food you eat and your identity wanted to most of the where my mouth so i know that many people don't think about this when they eat but added our ancestors struggle for the same plate of food that is before us. How did they work to find the perfect recipe. That makes it tastes. Like home in personally whenever i make a haitian or latin dish especially when i'm learning how to make it i feel much more connected to that particular culture and food has really shaped who i am because i've learned to cope with love in my dad. Always says you don't cook with love. The food won't come out right. So i feel like my learning how to cook with love. I've definitely learned to apply that to other aspects of my life in other activities. That i do what a beautiful reflection Hope my song one day feels the same way about my cooking. See what is the relationship between the food you eat and your identity. Thank you for the question. i'm. I'm originally from texas from san antonio on my family's from may go so I have moved all over the country and for me the my relationship with food is definitely like others have shared already is is home. It allows me to bring my family with me. Wherever i move wherever i go. I just had a bean issues. Tackle right unlike ensue. So simple but so beautiful. Because that's what i ate growing up. And i can be reminded right of home i can. I can call the spirit of my grandmother into me and it's and for some people it might sound silly but when i have that i am brought right back into my grandmother's house where i was. I was raised. That was beautiful because now bring so much joy but it also sustained life for my family when that was all that was available to them. And you so much see also mexican so i received very much tortilla and three horns. Okay so now we're gonna go to question number. two on. this question comes from my personal life. So can you cook food from your country of origin in the united states. What are the challenges you face and how have you adapted to them. One that we begin with you thank you. I think that nowadays. I can answer that question very in a very different way from eighty seven years ago. You know when when. I first came to gainesville in lear longer than that. When i first came to the states at a personal level my my very first grade disappointment was not signing coffee in a coffee that i could call coffee. I ended up having to buy mid idea the iota which was only italian espresso for many years. Before you're able to access what. I see the real coffee you know and i was in long island in new york which you would have thought but then when we came here and opening the restaurant we clothing access source any of our ingredients. We had to go to tom. Bound when had to go than later on was kinda and it was not that long ago that we had to be go out of gainesville source ingredients so that we could cook our fluids. Now as as you know the scene it's completely different They're having many changes especially langley. After of in the last day cable also after mighty an all dad word there. Such an influence in this area of or the ricans in and before he'd have seen from you know venezuelans cubans and all that you can access. I think that most of things that we look. I know that's more the case for every concrete but in terms of our foods I have found that atheists a lot better now than it was ever in terms of sourcing. Thank you very much that for historical perspective. Wish to unroll history. Okay lean c. Can you cook food from all of your countries in the us challenges. Another patients I can cook some. I think most haitian food that. I can dominican or cuban food but for the most part if i can't have a lot to learn from all three but the main challenges that i faced one that was saying is finding good authentic ingredients in gainesville Especially for haitian food. Because i don't think there are any haitian stores here in asian markets. I know there's aloe that which is like cubans. So i can sort of find what i need to make dominican food but Yeah there's not many of those around here. I'd have to go all the way down to miami or orlando justifying ingredients. But how i get around that. Is i just substitute them for different ingredients. The food isn't usually come out the same the textures the same. But it's as close as i get to in gainesville so i'll take.

"Advocates throughout latin america. It's interesting to see. In latin america the liberalisation of abortion rights slowly but surely meanwhile here in the united states. It seems to be going the opposite direction. There's different starting points there right. I mean you had nineteen. Seventy-three is a lot of people's lifetime to this point where abortion was made widely available in the united states. and it's a relatively more recent phenomena in latin america. And i guess now there's kind of a congruous with it's kind of a crossing point where there are efforts obviously to stymie access to legal abortions in the united states just as there are efforts to make it more available in latin america. Now we'll say some. Latin american countries have actually made it more difficult honduras. Which cape mentioned is one of the strictest antiabortion laws and they recently passed a concert amendment making it harder to ever change the law to make it easier for women to have access to abortion so there is there is a counter movement. And it's very strong. Kate any thoughts. It's interesting i think we're in a phase of kind of the world where with the internet. We are able to have these global conversations. Things that previously were. Maybe silo d- To domestic politics in a particular country people are realizing these common threads right in different countries. And you're seeing that a lot right now. Particularly with kind of social and cultural issues secure in brazil people are talking about black lives matter. The conversations are changing around religion around. You know sex gender sexuality. And so i think more more there's one conversation.

There is just to other countries in the region where abortion was legal guba since the nineteen sixties and uruguay became the first latin american democracy to allow the practice back in two thousand twelve. So there's still this really steep road up to try to get. Abortion legalized or even decriminalize and a lot of latin america. Yeah they're a huge swath of this region that you know still prohibit abortions entirely. A few notable examples are in central america in honduras and el salvador. You can go to jail for you. Know even accidentally having an abortion their cases of women in el salvador who've been in jail for years who say you know they've tripped fell accidentally terminated their pregnancies and were prosecuted for that major countries like brazil where you have a right wing president. Who's committed basically to not allowing abortion legalization to move forward. It's a very different picture. So you have these major victories but at the same time you have some movement in the other direction in certain areas so patrick even in mexico. You still have now doctors who are saying. We're not gonna do any abortions. Is this a very interesting movement. We saw odaguard will also sort of mexico city when abortion was legalized here. I mean basically some of these doctors and nurses referred to themselves as conscientious objectors. They said they feel morally opposed to abortion and will not perform them and there's a federal law in mexico that's also before the supreme court right now which basically ensures them that right and non-life-threatening circumstances so there's a lot of people waiting what's going to happen before the supreme court on this particular law of doctors and practitioners who referred to themselves as conscientious objectors. Who will not perform the procedure from what they say is moral grounds. This is also cropped up in argentina and would have to some extent so it is an issue however legal this is will be sufficient providers so for mexico city which is had widely available abortions more than a decade has managed to cope with it but nationwide and mexico. It'll be interesting to see kate. You're in brazil right now which is home to the world's largest catholic population also huge evangelical community and the current president jacob also narrow. He slammed argentina's decision and vowed abortions never going to be legalized long as he's in office. What's up abortion rights movement like in brazil. Yeah well it's small. It's highly polarized. Here i mean there are a lot of parallels really between the united states and brazil. At this point you know you have a very conservative populace. President who took power you know on social media and who was spouses really conservative social beliefs and has a movement behind him of people who really care about that the evangelical population in brazil which is now a quarter of the population and is super politically. Involved has made you know this issue sort of their most important one and actually. I talked to someone the other day who said you know. The evangelical movement continues to support also not because of his opposition to abortion. And they see him as an instrument of god to stop this stuff. So you have this really hear more than activists calling for abortion legalization. You have kind of the opposite. You have people from the right growing increasingly vocal about their opposition to this. You know we had a case. Last year in brazil that was really emblematic. A ten year old girl had been raped by her uncle and had gotten pregnant and went to the hospital to receive an abortion which is legal in just in cases of rape here. Just you know up to a certain number of weeks pregnant and the doctors there refused. And then this became dislike a touchtone where you had a conservative protesters massing outside of the hospital yelling at this girl. She ultimately had to go to another city to get her pregnancy terminated. And i think it just shows that at this point there's actually a lot of pressure in the other direction to make the laws in brazil even more restrictive when it comes to abortions what about activists and other countries are they trying to offer any sort of support to say activists in places like brazil or an el salvador where abortion is still criminalised completely. Yeah i mean. I think there's definitely a big kind of cross national network. I know for example. American abortion activists have for a long time works on kind of the legal cases of women in el salvador. Who have found themselves in jail for five ten years for the crime of having an abortion. But i think it's actually probably an interesting question. Whether or not american activists are kind of learning from their latin american counterparts because the fact is a lot of things are changing here this region and really quickly i think the style of activism those types of messaging even just know where people are protesting and how i think probably american feminists have a lot to learn from that and should start looking in that direction to patrick abortions longer. A crime in mexico deny and restrictions are slowly getting chip that elsewhere as you mentioned earlier. That doesn't mean it's easily accessible. So how are abortion opponents. Making it difficult for women who seek them. That's an interesting question. I think throughout latin america k. Talked a little bit about abortion rights activists who are you know. Have a really an international network. There's also an international network on the other side of abortion restriction inist abortion opponents who are very well represented here in mexico. Sometimes they have their own clinic set up to advise quote unquote advise women about abortions. Whether they're making the right decision. The very active on social media. So there's that countervailing movement among people who are opposed to increase access to abortion one more thing on the activism from the side of the abortion rights movement. I talked to a number of them last week. One of the tactics are trying to take since they should. That's so weighed down. By so many moral imponderables. A lot of them are trying to as much as possible. Frame it as a health issue because we know that in fact abortions are widely performed in latin america by some estimates a so once that he's saying as many as one in three pregnancies end abortions hundreds of women every year throughout latin america. Either die or maim to these illegal procedures so to some extent the activists are trying to frame this as a health issue in other words. Basically saying these women are going to get abortions anyway. The idea is to ensure that they get them safely and that they survived a procedure. Such a strategy if you will. That's to some extent been used by abortion rights.

The History of US Presidential Transportation
"First us president of any sort to fly in an airplane was theodore roosevelt. It was rather short flight as airplanes at the time didn't have a very long range and it was probably one of the more dangerous. Flights ever attempted by president sitting or former come over after this short sightseeing flight. Us presidents didn't do any flying. It would be another thirty three years before an actual sitting. Us president would get on an airplane. The first airplane designated for presidential use was purchased in nineteen thirty three it was a douglas dolphin amphibious aircraft and it was operated by the us navy as there was no air force at the time.

Resetting miners people in their houses. I it's really in their bedrooms and from their beal something. Bigger than we started building larger farms studying started understanding how of being industries Sequel awesome makes nick. Scheele your bags to us when we are up to also my bags terms of the company started in two thousand seventeen Obviously it was bull run when everybody was trying to get into minding I think in my opinion was worst possible. Time to get into mining The company did not do too well for the first two three years Given that like. I came on on the bull run when bitcoin was at twenty thousand bitcoin crash. At thirty five hundred. And we trudged through it Kept growing wild la. Bitcoin was in. Its bearish market We expanded operations bought miners and right now enjoying the fruits of our labor and pushing forwards We started mining A little bit of everything Whatever we could get our hands on in terms of basics at the time I wasn't in the company at the beginning There was another Technical lead who purchased basically s. nine l. threes gps and a little bit of everything Mix and match When i came onto the company basically mouse of how much Each each coin each blockchain represented in terms of work. Manual labor maintained the miners How much each miners were consuming versus. How much the reducing and eventually We decided to just focus on bitcoin. Even that diversifying meant that we have to have different parts that we have to have different minors that we have to have different sectors of the data center that we have had different wires depending on the consumption so basically just standard is our entire operation to mind. Bitcoin so now we're focusing specifically on mining bitcoin. We offer some watching solutions to cover. Basically the employability factor of having a large mining operation and have more employees on the company So we're developing blockchain solutions for local companies in argentina and for some american companies as well So basically a little bit of mining and a little bit of developing on blockchain.

So much of what we've done under both parties over more than half a century. Um, to establish our Our strength. Has just thought that it's so much of it is just melted away. I'd be curious of your of your opinion. I'm afraid you're right, Mark. You know what's happening now It's just a continuation of what happened in the Obama Biden there now that it's the Biden era, Russia had been a peripheral player in Middle East if a player at all since 1973 when Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger help eject them from Middle East, and Obama basically invited invited him back in after the Syrian Red Line fiasco when he refused to enforce his own red line. And now you've got countries like Saudi Arabia, longstanding partner of the United States, who see what's happened with Joe Biden's bug out in Afghanistan were abandoning not just Afghans who helped us but even our own citizens, and they think they need to start cutting side deals to protect their own interests. You know, some people compared what's happened over the last week in Afghanistan. Having decided on in 1975. And remember what happened. Saigon in 1975 small foretaste of what Lay ahead, Laos and Cambodia fell almost immediately. You had the horrors of Paul Pot, then become a rouge. Cuba is sending shock troops all over the All over Latin America and Africa as well. Russia invaded Afghanistan. Um, so for years that reverberated. I'm afraid that Joe Biden's impotence and incompetence in Afghanistan will reverberate for years to come

And in that sense yes we poverty going down but at the same time when you begin to leave poverty behind is ucla. For instance for many millions of of letting americans The perspective us to be in a vicious circle of not being able to advance while at the same time jozy excesses from the top one percent of the population. And i believe that in this case social networks have played a role in basically showing people. How difficult lives are while at the same time. Are this privilege People who are enjoying all benefits of the system on diabetes that Resentment and anger in that you've our society doesn't address. These concerns will be in the middle of play ship of explosions of rage. Like this during the future. Perfect segue from next question. Because all of this inequality and economic downturn is now also affecting politics which is growing to the extremes if you look at book alier both on the right and petro in columbia and gusty you one of the presidential candidates in peru on on the left. I mean there's no middle ground or can there can them a middle ground return in latin america. I believe that actually actually in the case of chilean we're going to see that the center hoax We don't know if it's going to be the center Writer centre-left believe that he's going to center left but he's going to the center and that it will be an example on how to deal with these pressures author of course very complex place. I believe that that late show the way for the rest of north america. Of course. Gary concerned about the the case of the rule. I i believe the most uncertainity tuition which basically neither candidate is gonna hit or is the right president for for the country but at the same time we have seen that in the rule things operate in particular way in which leaves the new president clashes with some of the powers that that exists will see political instability and change of of names on who is in the presidency but again these out of the of these confusion associated with when. This time's i believe that eventually will find a way on. The chilly would show us how at i believe that actually columbia will also find a way. Despite the fact that we are in the middle of of complicated situation. That sounds very good. And i hope you're right. It's the kind of the resurgence of the of at least in public discourse of the military in latin america. We've seen it in in brazil and inside about lord in columbia cetera. it's a continent of military who has generals dictators as kind of protagonists of the political world.

"From your article. The question of what is possible via the ballot. Box still seems to be alive. One can can you say something about that particularly in this year of of elections. Yes it is. It is very sore question. It is in latin america. I think anyone who has followed jan daring cobian indian gay or is thinking of. How could things change in my country. you know. we'll be faced with that very frightening prospect you know. How far can we go before. We hit the reaction of the media. Kobina's and that a lot of that data from you know the private sector from other countries. Perhaps one country illustrates this more than others. Which is brazil. Lula who was president in brazil it was elected in two thousand and two and remained president until two thousand and ten new. A no common figure that was a worker manual worker. He has worked as a trade unionist for years. He contributed to creating the workers party in brazil. In overthrowing dictatorship he's a man who was Honesty in in wanting to change. No one can. We doubt when he came to power Detected a couple of times and you knew what present was like. He knew that if you wanted to transform brazil into a more democratic democracy country you had to make a couple of changes change the constitution basically is a very specific country. There was no struggle for independence. You know. the the former colonial power decided that brazil was going to be a kingdom. The constitution reflected a very different set of any powers in the country so the constitution needed to be changed. The media needs to be changed their all in the hands of private private owners and they are political after. I haven't got you know nothing. That's changed in this country and you need to change the economic model because brazil is locked in a position whereby it provides wrote material to other countries but is unable to create an industry where value can produce. Its own foods and Provide work and for for its own population so this needs to change and you knew older this. He had written talked about it but when he came to power he decided that the conditions are not there. Were not there for him to do that. And maybe he was right. You know. it's very difficult to say so instead of changing the system. We've decided that he was going to use the system in order to benefit those people that he had been elected for the poor and he did he raised in a millions of people from poverty.

"That made it possible politically geopolitically and in terms of the economy as well so This is what happened in during this so-called pink wave so the wave rose by the wave also broke and we start from a very different vantage point from from rookie. A in two thousand ten and in your article in lamont diplomatic use the the image vickery's who flies to near the sun. The higher he goes the more vulnerable he becomes which kind of suggests that there's something intrinsically risky or vulnerable about the particular conditions for democracy in latin america. Can you explain a little bill. Why you chose that image to try to convey that situation. Yeah the idea is that there is a limit a structural social limit as to have far democracy or what we accepted to call. Democracy today will allow people to go especially people from the left it carries would have been fine if he had not attended to go as far reaching the sun but by going too far it's wings made of walks start to melt and by going too far precipitates his own and fold. There is logic at the very core of democracy. it's a progressive continuous increase in people's right people freedom people's capacity to decide for themselves and against this principle. This driving force you might say. Debbie's another that is as strongly inscribed in our society is as the previous one which the logic of capitalist profit making and there is a point where the two logics collide and the wings of the democrats. Start to to melt. And this is what has happened over. The course of centuries since may lead in the in the independence independence in latin america anytime leaders attempted to push the boundaries of what was expected by elite. Little too far then. There was a coup There was a military intervention. There was a reaction. You would argue. I think that really understand the situation. Latin america today we have to understand something of the circumstances in which those nations gain their independence and gaining their independence meant in terms of who actually had power and determined the way in which democracy was expressed. Yes the The democracy project of the nineteen th century never really came to fruition anywhere. I mean that would be an argument. You could make for funds for instance but there is something something specific with latin america which is the fact that the people who initiated the revolutions. The the breakaway from the colonial powers did intend for the colonies the newborn countries to enjoy more freedom but did not want the comics in the social hierarchy to change. who were they. They were descendants. From the colony from spain from portugal. And benefited. from the way latin america had taken its place within the International the world economy system which was a system whereby ritchie's came from trade. There was no industry. No local industry. There was no room for the development of a internal market. So that means that independence used the vocabulary of social emancipation of of of freedom of citizens right but only to break away from the center of power from the colonial center of power but not to actually democratize the society which means that there was a highest and which still remains in the way the societies were built and the prospects that they they kind of drew in order to to convince people to mobilize and the the very real intention for society not to change.

"That's where the whole issue is. How do we protect the informal economy but making sure that there's some elements of accountability and ownership are part of the process. I believe in shared responsibility. Responsibility doesn't go one way from the elites down from the government down and then the poor people expecting we need to find a way of continuing to help but at the With some level of expectation they need to contribute they need to also be active part not recipients but active part now what industries are those while that is the challenge and i would argue that every country will need to evaluate. What are the industries where they have some competitive advantage. We don't have the magic one for every country and i am a person particularly against standardized solutions. I think that every country should evaluate. What are they good at. And then leverage and that and that is where the private sector that know we have been criticized because they are selfish. And all these other that which i can fundamentally agree with but is the private sector where we can see and evaluate how it can become always know public policies that we allow the alliance in the public and private sector incorporating legis finished with that in these initiative that i'm very involved in central maggots wrangler. Norte what you have what they might do ahead hansel you know what. He's one of the most incredible things of these initiatives. What comes again and again out of the private sector is a social component. They are very at the beginning. i was like senegal. You say that because he would say no.

Thank you for joining us. It's great to hear a contrary alternate view. That's more optimistic. Beat thank you my pleasure anytime. I'm just gonna ask you peter. One word answer pessimistic or optimistic about latin america today in the end. I'm optimistic. Because latin america all was muddled through but the pain the suffering the difficulty the static to stagnation the unemployment the currency problems the inflation are all these pains that you just keep happening again and again and Sure there'll be a. I agree with that. He got they'll be a pendulum. Swing the the problem is like while the pendulum swing from one side to the other. The level of pains dramatic. I'm left with one. Really strong message is the private sector needs to step up and not just a giant companies but small and medium size companies have people that are involved in tech and new A new economic sectors absolutely cannot be apart from the political spectrum. They have to be inside involved and part as as architects of of whole regions renewal. I mean i don't believe in that at all. I feel like the in america. We have not taught anybody. And certainly no latin american student who studied here that the private sector has a role to play. This is a whole new issue. I mean only recently has come companies like levi's or Or ben and jerry's or recently been involved in social activities and social issues But it's a really recent phenomenon. I mean and you know most companies distinct that my role is to make money and if on the way i get to hire a few people that's good for society.
