More on Mexico's economy

I posted below on how Mexico needs a worldview enema. I was writing a bit tongue in cheek. But Ruben Navarrette, writing in the San Diego Union-Tribune on Thursday, 1 June, has a few more suggestions, which he got from Jose Gonzalez, a U. S. former of Mexico.

1. Tackle police corruption; people have no incentive to be productive if they're constantly being fleeced and robbed by those who are supposed to protect them.

2. Stop penalizing employers and small businesses; cutting licensing fees would allow companies to create more jobs and pay higher wages.

3. Clean up the environment by punishing companies that plunder natural resources and lay waste to the countryside and waterways.

Note: Mexico still needs a bit of a worldview enema.
