Learning From El Salvador

Many people in the United States associate the small Central American nation of El Salvador as a country to be avoided because of the danger posed by violent gangs. Others, with longer memories, recall American involvement in the brutal civil war during the 1980s and the legacy of two million Salvadorians living in the United States. More recently, some politicians in the U.S. congress have warned that El Salvador was becoming a nation linked to other "radical" governments in Central and South America - a threat somehow to American prosperity and security. Yet, during its brief time in office, the new government has initiated a series of reforms to provide free health care to the general population, limit the cost of pharmaceutical drugs, help small farmers and small business owners, and enable students from all sectors of the population to attend school. Do its efforts represent a threat or do they provide examples of policies other nations might learn from?
