The Politics Of Ecuador’s President Correa


“Kathleen, thanks for bringing balance to the debate about whether or not Correa would confiscate property owned by foreigners. I think this is just the result of the paranoid fear whenever a proponent of social justice (some might say “left-winger”) is leading a country.

“The first time I saw one of your headlines referencing President Correa and the possibility that he might expropriate foreign-held land, I thought, uh-oh, here goes another capitalist rant about those dirty South American communists.
