Vincent Daniels presents Selling South of the Border posted at Thunderbird School of Global Management saying “Like many norteamericanos, I assumed that this was Latin America; that everyone South of the Border ate tacos and burritos and loved Mariachi music.

Alan Cowell presents Ivory For Sale, Legally (and Controversially) posted at The Lede saying “It is a question never easily resolved: Can the trade in ivory ever be conducted in a way that protects elephants from poachers?
