48 years ago there was no such violent confrontation between the President of the Republic and business groups as the one apparently wanted by the National Palace for the misnamed electricity reform.
However, not even then, when President Echeverría confronted the Monterrey businessmen, did he insult them as President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has insulted business groups.
Urban legends aside, there were no policies to damage their finances, so it is pertinent to ask if, due to electoral profitability, Palacio will turn what is today a collision into an unproductive and disastrous train crash.
They will have to compensate Claudia Sheinbaum
In 1985, the earthquake forced to overthrow the Secretary of Commerce, almost all the businesses whose clients were Secom employees went bankrupt. It took years for the area to recover and years for CDMX finances to replace the income that that commercial ecosystem produced.
One supposes that the masterminds that manage the change of headquarters of the seven dependencies that, says El Economista, are advancing to emigrate from CDMX have already taken into account the vacuum left and evaluated the damage to the capital’s finances.
If they did not calculate these collateral damages, at least the CDMX Ministry of Finance would have to do the math and demand that the Government of the Republic somehow replace the income that will undoubtedly go down the drain. Will they dare to demand?
For the Alliance, again insomnia
Here it was said that the formation of the Opposition Alliance altered the electoral plans of the Government of the Republic, so much so that the first bombards left the National Palace as soon as it was integrated.
With sagacious maneuvers and provocations in August they began to cause fissures among the alliance members, enough so that the leaders of the PAN, PRI and PRD not only began to see themselves with mistrust.
The meeting yesterday, in which they seem to be back on track, and the support of two businessmen identified as opponents of Q4, provoked angry vituperations in the morning, a sign that, despite everything, the Alliance worries. And not a little.
