The Trouble in Naming Latin America's Most Violent City

The Trouble in Naming Latin America's Most Violent City
- Both, or neither – depends on how you count. The truth behind headline-grabbing superlatives is that counting the dead is an inexact science. Debate is ongoing over how and to what purpose we classify the planet’s most dangerous cities. Despite being home to 43 of the world’s 50 most dangerous cities (according to most counts, including those of both SJP and Igarapé) our understanding of violence in Latin America remains incomplete. That’s precisely why more research, more information and, yes, more lists are so vital to understanding and curbing violence and homicide, in the region and beyond.
The challenge of accurately comparing violence across cities is clear from taking a closer look at the differences between SJP and Igarapé Institute data.

Embracing new approach, African-American families help kids deal with racism
- A Philadelphia program is acting as a resource to help African-American families have honest conversations about those issues — and help them improve coping skills.
When Barbara Ellis was younger, growing up in small town West Texas, she remembers dancing with a white friend.
"And some of his friends were saying horrible things to him for dancing with me," she recalled. "And he kept that from me, I don't think he told me for like a year later."
But when she did find out, it was hard for her family and friends to have a larger conversation about the painful experience.

A Mexican Town Is Giving Americans Something Donald Trump Can't: Affordable Dental Care

A Mexican Town Is Giving Americans Something Donald Trump Can't: Affordable Dental Care
- Wearing medical scrubs and a welcoming smile, Pablo introduces himself, his hand seamlessly producing a business card from his breast pocket between handshakes. “We have the best prices in town,” he says, confidently running through a litany of dental procedures his employer offers.
It’s a pitch Pablo makes dozens — perhaps hundreds — of times a day to tens of thousands of dental refugees who stream across the border at Yuma, Arizona, each year seeking the affordable dental care they only dream of back home. With an astounding 600 dentists in this town of just 6,000, competition for customers is brisk. And there is no shortage of them.


Donald Trump's NAFTA Trade Imbalance Delusion

Donald Trump's NAFTA Trade Imbalance Delusion
- The Trump administration is determined to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) — which created a single market from Mexico's southern border to the Yukon — but the main political appeal of this policy rests on a popular myth: that "fair" trade requires the United States to have a surplus or balanced trade with both Mexico and Canada.
We are supposed to feel especially aggrieved that Mexico regularly has a sizable surplus with us, $63.2 billion in goods in 2016, according to Commerce Department figures. This shows, as the president repeatedly has said, that U.S. trade officials negotiated a bad deal for American firms and workers. Trump has promised to do much better.

The End of the Trump Administration?

The End of the Trump Administration?
- The world’s view of US President Donald Trump’s administration is changing for the worse. In fact, the chaos and controversy that have marked Trump’s short time in office have deepened doubts, both inside and outside the United States, about whether his presidency will even survive its entire four-year term.
Europe’s perspective was articulated most clearly by German Chancellor Angela Merkel. After a contentious NATO summit and a discordant G7 meeting, she concluded that the US, under Trump, can no longer be viewed as a reliable partner. “The times in which we could rely fully on others,” she stated pointedly, “are somewhat over.”
Merkel’s statements were driven partly by disagreement between Trump and Europe on climate change, trade, NATO (particularly Article 5, its collective defense clause, which Trump refused to endorse), and relations with Russia. But disagreement on such issues reflects divisions within Trump’s own administration, raising questions about who, if anybody, is actually in charge. 

After US trade negotiations with Mexico, Minnesota's sugar growers mostly keep their sweet deal

After US trade negotiations with Mexico, Minnesota's sugar growers mostly keep their sweet deal
- Across many industries, from automaking to food processing, the United States and Mexico enjoy a closely intertwined, friendly trade relationship, thanks to the North American Free Trade Agreement.
When it comes to the sugar trade under NAFTA, though, ties between the U.S. and Mexico are anything but sweet. For years, the U.S. sugar industry has worked hard to limit how much sugar Mexico, the world’s sixth-largest sugar producer, can send to the north. Mexico, constantly looking for places to sell excess product, has sought ways around existing trade law to get its cane sugar sold on the U.S. market.
President Donald Trump has vowed to protect U.S. industries, and opened up renegotiation of NAFTA with tough talk on Canadian and Mexican trade practices. Observers pointed to sugar as an especially contentious area where trade talks could go sour.
