Francisco Franco: Dictator of Spain (Tom Richey Tonight) 

TOM RICHEY TONIGHT is a new format I’m trying where I interview scholars about topics that interest me that I know very little about.

I had the pleasure of sitting down with Dr. Enrique Sanabria to discuss the career and legacy of General Francisco Franco. Dr. Sanabria is an Associate Professor of History at the University of New Mexico who specializes in Modern Spain. In our conversation, we discussed the Spanish Civil War, Franco’s relationship with Fascist parties, the conservative nature of Franco’s dictatorship and how it changed over time during the Cold War.

In discussing General Franco, Dr. Sanabria highlights the concept of two Spains: a liberal, progressive Spain and a conservative, Catholic Spain. Spain continues to grapple with the controversial legacy of a man who is still remembered fondly by some in the conservative, Catholic camp and reviled by those in the liberal, progressive camp.

This interview will be beneficial for teachers and students of European History who would like to learn about a topic that tends to lurk in the background of the narrative of twentieth century dictatorships and the World War II era.

Foreign Aid and Remittance: Crash Course Econ #34 

What is foreign aid? How much foreign aid does the United States distribute each year. Comparatively, not much. In fact, foreign aid only accounts for a small fraction of most nations’ overall spending. But it’s hugely important. Foreign aid improves healthcare, can promote economic growth, and assists people who’ve been through disasters. Remittances are moneys that are sent internationally by immigrants.

Together, he and I will investigate the history of Scottish nationality and the current state (as of 2016) of Scotland’s efforts at independence.

The Economics of Immigration: Crash Course Econ #33 

Is Immigration good or bad? Immigration is a touchy subject in the United States. The 2016 election has been filled with debate about the subject, and both proponents and opponents have lots of reasons for their stance. But, this is a show about economics, and when it comes to the effects of immigration on economies, there is actually a lot of consensus. It turns out, immigration is economically beneficial.
