    but many developing countries have radically improved in the last 20 years. Americans sometimes t hink of latin america in particular as a vast backwater, but times have changed. I just read in a Mexican newspaper yesterday how they are planning on putting video cameras in every minibus in their entire state by the end of the year, all funded by a federal mexican govt program. The level of crime they are current dealing with there is lower than many American cities. Even if you assume they're underreporting by half, which is a pretty crazy assumption for a stable, developed area of Mexico far from the drug wars, it's still lower than places like DC.
