WSJ: Brian Winter on How Latin America Is Fighting Corruption

Wednesday, February 10, 2016

With the resignation of a Guatemalan president and the massive investigation into Brazil's Petrobras scandal, Latin America is making gains battling corruption. AS/COA Vice President Brian Winter and Brazilian prosecutor Antonio Carlos Welter spoke to WSJ Video about the new anti-corruption wave. "People have really lost their fear of going out and demanding good quality governance," said Winter. Even amid a recession in the region's largest economy, polls show the issue is at the forefront of the public's mind. "Brazilians consistently say that the number one problem in the country is not the economy, not unemployment, not crime, but corruption," he said. "And that's new."
