[ED: Hardcover], [PU: STANFORD UNIV PR], After its independence in 1891, Mexico experienced more than fifty years of political chaos until Porfirio Diaz assumed power in 1876. Thirty-five years later, Mexico entered another period of turbulent instability (1910-29), during which the country underwent a revolution, a counter-revolution, a counter-counter-revolution, three civil wars, and four violent coups or attempted coups. In both periods, governments repudiated debts, confiscated cash reserves, demanded forced loans, and engaged in the unrestrained printing of currency.PThe governments that came to power after these bouts of instability faced a crucial dilemma. They needed resources in order to impose order, yet they lacked the ability to raise significant tax revenue. The answer was to borrow -- but how did governments facing armed resistance and a real chance of being overthrown credibly promise to repay their debts?PPorfirio Diaz's strategy in the 1880s was to create a bank with a legal monopoly over lending to the federal government. Diaz's regime also enforced property rights to give elites tied to powerful local strongmen a stake in the political system. The threat of revolt by these strongmen assured politically connected local elites that the federal government would not attempt to confiscate their wealth. Diaz's strategy created an inefficient and concentrated banking system that interacted with the politicized nature of property rights in such a way as to produce an extremely concentrated industrial system.PThe Mexican Revolution (which began in 1910) violently ended the Porfirian regime but failed to alter the basic political and economic calculus. Just as Diaz had done, the leaders who attained power after1920 selectively enforced property rights. In addition, the government created a hostage: a government-owned commercial bank. If the rules of the game were altered, the capital of the government's bank and its lucrative profits would disappear. As a result, despite ongoingVersandfertig in über 4 Wochen, [SC: 0.00]

Details of the book
The Power and the Money: The Mexican Financial System, 1876-1932

Facing financial chaos, Porfirio Diaz's strategy in the 1880s was to create a bank with a legal monopoly over lending to the government and to enforce elites' property rights in order to get their support. This book shows how Mexican leaders, even after the Mexican Revolution, failed to alter these basic economic and political policies, resulting in a continuing high level of financial and industrial concentration.
