Mexico: Reforms without a Vision for Development?

A DISCUSSION WITH AUTHOR:
Luis Rubio, Chairman, Centro de Investigación para el Desarrollo, A.C. (CIDAC), Mexico, D.F.

”…it is now evident that there is no vision of development behind the reforms.  It is merely
a list of items that needed to be addressed rather than a strategic plan for development:
a set of themes more than an integrated vision for the transformation of the country.”

-Luis Rubio, Author, A Mexican Utopia: The Rule of Law is Possible (Wilson Center, 2015)
