James S., yes there were numerous commentaries on the last post, but nothing to be published here. There is plenty of interest in this subject -- period. I will look into it further.
Bob S., you touch on a difficult subject. Is the president of a country always the president, or can he be something else? I addressed "Dr: Correa" and not "President Correa" because I was interested in him as an economist and the author of a book, not as a public official. If and when he leaves office, the same interest will remain. I probably would not have done so had he not shown a willingness to be considered as a private individual in his lawsuit against a newspaper (he is suing as an individual citizen against slander).
Brad D., Eddie L., indeed, Correa is a controversial president. However, such subjects as relations with Iran or Venezuela are not on the table here. If you wish to discuss them, many other blogs do so.
