Pluralism and Expenditure
What is it about?
In this essay, I present the case of the recent reforms in Mexico undertaken by federal legislators to correct what was viewed as a local democracy problem. The policy intervention has proved its limitations, suggesting that new directions for reform should be considered.
Why is it important?
A seemingly obvious, yet frequently overlooked, recommendation when planning reforms is to examine the current institutional framework. Failure to do so results in good intentions translating into poor results. Furthermore, the public is getting tired of watching politicians implement unsound policies that cost money and effort, but which ultimately exacerbate problems. Of course there is no foolproof way to remedy this situation, but there are ways to mitigate negative collateral results.
