Outlook for the Energy Reform
MEI 868 (FEBRUARY 19) — Rice University’s Baker Institute hosted a panel discussion on the outlook of Mexico’s energy reform under the scenario in which a party of the Left, led by Andrés Manuel López Obrador, wins the presidency in the general elections that are scheduled for July 1, 2018.
This report reviews highlights of the comments by the keynote speaker, Jesús Reyes Heroles, and those of panelists Lourdes Melgar, Miriam Grunstein and Pablo Zárate. In the Background section, prior elections are reviewed in which the candidate of the Left has been denied the presidency, fairly or otherwise. We identify features of the design of the energy reform that should be understood as accommodation to the views of the Oil Left.
In the section of Observations, we identify upstream design flaws.
