35 West with Richard G. Miles

Polls show that support for democracy as “the best form of government” have dropped across Latin America.   Thomas Carothers, Director of the Democracy and Rule of Law program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace,  explains the global context, why we shouldn’t be too pessimistic, and some of the driving factors behind enthusiasm for democracy.   We also talk about populism, and what it means for elections this year in Mexico and Brazil.
