In this episode, Mariana Campero speaks with Dr. Luis Rubio, Chairman of the think tank Mexico Evalua, about the transcendental changes that have occurred in Mexico under the Presidency of Lopez Obrador, why the immense power concentrated in the Mexican presidency constitutes a crucial challenge for development, and AMLO’s desire to control a good chunk of the economy and to protect his signature legislation on electricity—even if this translates into a mismatch between the United States-Canada against Mexico. They also speak about AMLO’s views of the United States and the macroeconomic conditions that could push AMLO to make bold decisions prior to the upcoming 2024 elections.
