2.1 The Origin
Mexico undertook large scale reform and deregulation of its economy in the second half of the 1980s. Among those reforms, President Miguel de la Madrid’s (1982-1988) decision to liberalize trade and international capital flows were crucial to foster Mexico’s integration with the developed world. His government reduced import tariffs rapidly as part of the Uruguay round of trade negotiations under the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT). Furthermore, de la Madrid pursued a series of reforms that facilitated the inflow of portfolio capital and foreign direct investment into the Mexican economy and the expansion of its domestic financial system. Then, in the early 1990s, the administration of President Carlos Salinas de Gortari (1988-1994) commenced negotiations for a foreign trade agreement with the United States, later known as the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), and further liberalized the financial system, privatizing the largest commercial banks and deregulating the banking system.
2.2.1 Trade liberalization
Since the Great Depression, the Mexican government followed a strategy of import substitution industrialization (ISI). Under ISI the Mexican government instituted a series of policies and regulations to protect domestic industries from international competition. This approach installed not only high import tariffs, but also non-tariff barriers on the importation of foreign goods, and provided subsidies to aid Mexican industries. Under this model, the country’s producers had no incentive to export manufactures because they enjoyed a captive domestic market with little or no competition. The Mexican model of development, based on ISI, continually ran into trouble in the 1970s and 1980s. Except for auto manufacturers and maquiladoras, companies operating under the ISI model did not export much and it was hard for them to get enough foreign exchange to pay for imported capital equipment and intermediate goods. Moreover, severe shortages of foreign exchange also could jeopardize the foreign debt service of the Mexican government, generating damaging exchange rate crisis. In fact, the country had balance of payments crises, i.e., had to devalue its currency, in 1954, 1976, and 1982.
Between 1979 and 1981 the Federal Reserve Board raised interest rates in the United States to record levels to contain inflation in that country, with European central banks also raising rates...
