MEXICO: MIT Study Of Narco Economics....Studied By Calderon.

                                         SLATE/ R.FISMAN

      Somewhat technical explanation about how the Mexican drug business has adjusted to President Calderon's 5 year war on narcos.
      Fisman writes about the forensic economics research of MIT Ph.D. student Melissa Dell.
      Dell reports how the narcos act in textbook ways...changing routes to avoid towns where the army has cracked down...and invading towns where other narco gangs have been weakened.
