Voices of Mexico no. 32

Our Voice

In this issue, we discuss some interesting repercussions of the Mexican economic crisis. Víctor Rodríguez-Padilla and Rosío Vargas analyze Pemex's perspectives for transformation, highlighting the issues of Mexico's petroleum sovereignty and U.S. enérgy policy toward Mexico. Emilio Zebadúa examines the politization of Mexico's economic policy which was prompted by the recent change in government, the devaluation of the peso and the economic crisis. Finally, Mary Schneider Enriquez describes the efforts of Mexican society to maintain the vitality and persistence of its art given the scarcity of resources caused by the country 's economic crisis.
We also present topics related to bilateral relations between Mexico and the United States. Mónica Verea analyzes the renewed activism of the Mexican government 's foreign policy through the strengthening of links with Mexican communities abroad, which has permitted new forms of lobbying for Mexican interests and in defense of human and labor rights.
