  •  The country with Pemex embraces laissez-faire? (3+ / 0-)

    Well, bankers and accountants in the very Capitalist Cayman Islands embrace Pemex.  As do condo developers in San Diego.

    Why should any Mexican pay taxes when a couple of days later some Partido del Robo Institucional bureaucrat is going to send the money to some Caribbean island?

      Where, oh where is the ex-governor?

      Andres Granier disappeared his last day in office as Governor of Tabasco… along with the state treasury, an estimated 23 Billion pesos (about 1.8 Billion US$).

      It’s not so much that Granier was a mega-thief, as that he managed the unforgivable sin of not passing along the governorship to the PRI candidate in Tabasco that has made him a toxic asset to the Peña Nieto administration.
