El Narco - Inside Mexico's Criminal Insurgency - Ioan Grillo - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of the book El Narco:

The why behind the rise of the Mexican Cartels.

My favorite Ioan Grillo quote from the book:

"The story of the rise of El Narco is also the story of Mexican journalist who risks their lives to cover it."

Questions to ponder while reading El Narco:

How do we curb demand?

How do we bring justice?

My thoughts about El Narco:

An in-depth look at OUR crises.

The carnage is horrific.

We are not handling the problem appropriately.
