- Program Description
For six years, Carlos and Raul Salinas ruled Mexico -- Carlos as president, his brother Raul as his political fixer. The brothers convinced Washington, Wall Street, and the Mexican people a new age of political freedom and prosperity had dawned for Mexico. But in 1994, within days of Salinas leaving office, the Mexican economy collapsed, throwing the world financial system into crisis and revealing a story of scandal, corruption and murder which left Carlos in exile and Raul in prison. "Frontline" follows this modern fable of two brothers, exploring the charges of corruption in the Salinas government and examining the fall out of Mexico's economic demise for America and the world.
