“Half a Million or $1000 an ounce: Mining, Metrics, and Dubious Equivalencies in “Post” War Guatemala”

Tuesday, Jan 22, 2013 12:00a to 1:30p
CLOSED: Lettuce Eat Bastrop, TX

Throughout the Americas "development" increasingly means "fair trade" and resource extraction via transnational corporations, even for apparently progressive regimes like Morales in Bolivia and Correa in Ecuador. Diane Nelson explores the impact of a mountain-top removal open-pit mine in the western highlands of Guatemala and the efforts by local Mayan peoples to count in these vast, powerful transactions of money and ore.
