Mexico’s leftist Lopez Obrador wins largest landslide in country’s history
Kill off corruption, get that economy motoring, raise the incomes of pensioners…..well, that’s all fine.
The question is, how do you do it? The Venezuela method? Or the free market one?
For example, the oil industry. Re-establish the state monopoly? That’s going to lower corruption, isn’t it? Or how about let anyone play then tax the snot out of the resource rents?
The aims – largely at least – are fine. It’s the methods which matter.
