Predictions and Realities: Looking Back at Venezuela and Brazil Forecasts
In this segment of Latin Pulse’s 5-year anniversary, we look back at excerpts and outtakes from the past year of programs, particularly, from our forecast program at the beginning of 2016.
As Venezuelans continue fighting to recall President Nicolas Maduro, listen to an interview with Eric Hershberg of American University's Center for Latin American & Latino Studies (CLALS), who offers his view on the political climate in Venezuela at the beginning of the year. In an outake from an interview with David Smilde of Tulane University, the expert on Latin America gives his reasons why Nicolas Maduro’s administration should not use the courts to counter the new assembly taken over by the opposition. The government followed this tactic during the year.
Our audience followed Brazil’s Petrobras corruption case closely in the past year. While former president Dilma Rousseff was originally accused of being part of this scandal, she was eventually expelled from presidency for charges that had nothing to do with corruption but rather, for misleading congress on the country’s economic condition. Eric Hershberg weighs in on his forecast on Brazil. Matthew Taylor of American University also analyzes the crisis in Brazil. Hear his interviews from March and later in the summer.
