More matter with less art

The Economist does Peru, version 2014

Here’s the link.
It’s one of those wide-sweeping pieces that tries to condense a lot of issues into a limited space (TE has a strict word limit on this type of report, which doesn’t help). It’s off-base on some things e.g. Humala being ‘reclusive’, when that’s only a Lima-centric opinion and in fact Humala is out visiting plenty of provinces, opening new projects, speaking at social program gatherings etc, so maybe just maybe he doesn’t have that much time to pander to the chattering classes in the way they’d prefer.
But overall it’s a good note and gives a fair overview of the challenges facing the country at the moment, particularly in the run-up to the regional elections in October. Worth a read, you’ll be generally up to speed on the country afterwards.
