Mongolia's Stunning, Rapid Transformation Since 1989
In the early 1990s, Mongolia was swept up in the global response to the fall of the Berlin Wall and the breakup of the Soviet Union.  It established a democracy, instituted a market economy, elected a brand new Parliament, and began an entirely new society from scratch—and did all of this peacefully.  Host Marcus Smith discusses this remarkable transformation with Bulgaa Altangerel, the Mongolian Ambassdor to the United States.—Original airdate: 12/3/2014
