Miami Herald Is Alejandro Toledo Peru's last, best hope?: "Over the past 30 years, Peru has tried just about every type of government, in the process living under military regimes and leftist and conservative democratically elected presidents. All of those governments failed, and in the process, Peruvians have suffered through hyper inflation, a siege by guerrilla armies and human-rights abuses by the government. Today, Peruvians are as poor as they were in 1970, with half the population -- 12 million people -- living per day on what we spend buying a Big Mac." This story should have appeared two weeks ago. Now it comes out a bit flat. There are more policy specific issues now.
