Since the 1980s the neoliberal policies were introduced in Mexico, the country's economy has been in decline, poverty has increased and the current situation in the country is truly alarming in the political, social, economic and even cultural fields.

To confirm this, recently the Inter-American Development Bank said that Mexico is facing alarming levels of poverty, high levels of inequality, weak institutions, weak rule of law, a growing informal economy and low levels of educational quality, tax collection and productivity, so no macroeconomic stability and structural reforms implemented by the current administration without success, are sufficient to ensure themselves economic growth.

Therefore, the only peaceful option left to the country is to regain power through the ballot in the next election for a drastic change in government; eventually the newly established reforms will be reversed, which provide gradually recover level of growth needed for development.
