Is the "mano dura" working in El Salvador?

by Canning House Associate Fellow Andrew Thompson

Every week, Andrew Thompson draws on his great wealth of knowledge and experience of Latin America to bring our audience in-depth insights on economics, political risk, and business in the region.

What happened? In the first six months of this year the murder rate in El Salvador fell by an impressive 62.8%, to 585, a major achievement for the country’s maverick president, Nayib Bukele.
