The Week in Review: Live From Latin America
Connected by language and history, Latin America is a broad tapestry of many different people and ideas. An important economic region, local concerns carry international implications.
On Flipboard, many of these issues are being explored by our large community of Spanish-speaking readers. With Latinos projected to comprise 31% of the U.S. population by 2060, the relationship between the two Americas is developing in unsuspecting ways. For example, in Mexico, educational reform has led technologists to wonder if the next Steve Jobs is a 12-year-old girl. And on this side of the border, in Long Beach, California, voters elected the city’s first Latino and first openly gay mayor.
For a perspective on what’s to come, we’ve turned to our Latin American readers to help us understand the bicultural landscape. Have a look:
