This book addresses two questions that are crucial to understanding Mexicos current economic and political challenges. Why did the opening up of the economy to foreign trade and investment not result in sustained economic growth? Why has electoral democracy not produced rule of law? The answer to those questions lies in the ways in which Mexicos long history with authoritarian government shaped its judicial, taxation, and property rights institutions. These institutions, the authors argue, cannot be reformed with the stroke of a pen. Moreover, they represent powerful constraints on the ability of the Mexican government to fund welfare-enhancing reforms, on the ability of firms and households to write contracts, and on the ability of citizens to enforce their basic rights.

Noel Maurer is associate professor of business administration at Harvard Business School. He is the author of "The Power and the Money" and coauthor of "The Politics of Property Rights, Mexico since 1980", and "The Big Ditch" (Princeton).
