Assessing Neo-Liberal Reform

Monica Serrano
Release Date: June 1, 1998

Although the early 1990s witnessed great optimism with regard to the economic and political reforms introduced by the Salinas administration, the 1994-95 economic crisis raised doubts about the viability of market-oriented growth and political stability in Mexico. This book looks at the impact of economic reform and political liberalization on political institutions, state-society relations, and economic policymaking.
