A second program with Carlos Fuentes, this one about culture and politics: Will narco-politics defeat government? Will a "New Deal" be negotiated to help the ni-nis (a portion of the population, seven to eight million strong, with neither education nor jobs)? For Fuentes, one thing is certain, books and literary culture will outlast us all. (Part I)
