Pablo Soria de Lachica Discusses the Steady Growth of Mexico’s Economy in Q1

Following the U.S. elections of 2016, the topic of Mexico has been front and center for the newly elected White House administration, revealing considerable uncertainty with respect to crafting concise policies. During his election campaign, U.S President Donald Trump promised to renegotiate the terms of the North American Free Trade Agreement and to reinforce an import tax on Mexican goods, all the while criticizing U.S. companies for shifting production to Mexico and posturing about building a border wall. Inevitably, fear of Mr. Trump’s trade restrictions and economic policies affected investment and consumer sentiments in Mexico, sending the peso to its weakest level on record against the U.S. dollar in January 2017. Pablo Soria de Lachica, acclaimed expert in international trade and foreign exchange, analyzes the steady growth of Mexico’s economy in the first quarter of 2017, despite the low expectations…

Pablo Soria de Lachica Discusses The Effects of a Trump Economy on Global Economics

The global view from the desk of Pablo Soria del Lachica indicates the global response to President-Elect Donald Trump’s economic policies holds a cautionary trading tale with powerful implications. President-Elect Trump’s protectionist agenda suggests dismantling the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement, or TPP, likely to be accompanied by the unintended potential to initiate trade wars, depress global trade, and spark global recession. If the Trump administration chooses to impose increased tariffs on imports from China and Mexico, a 0.5 percent reduction in U.S. GDP could result, according to a Nov. 13, 2016 Business Insider article quoting Barclays chief US economist Michael Gapen. That reduction could go as high as a full percent, according to chief Citi economist Willem Buiter. Prices of goods in the US would likely rise, since parts for many items are manufactured overseas. Destroying the TPP agreement after…

Dicha reducción podría alcanzar hasta un porcentaje según…

Pablo Soria de Lachica Describes Mexican Budget Plans For 2017

A challenging external environment, including global oil slump, a tightening of monetary policy in the United States, and a slowdown of growth perspectives in emerging market economies (like China, Brazil, and Russia) has significantly battered Mexican peso causing the country to reduce government spending. Pablo Soria de Lachica, a published expert in international trading and business analyst, gives insights into Mexico’s budget plans for the upcoming fiscal year. When oil prices tumbled in 2014, Mexican government decided to open up its state-run oil and gas industry to private sector investment hoping to encourage foreign expertise and capital flow to develop new fields of crude oil and gas. Many believed the new reforms to stimulate liberalization of the petroleum industry and boost the country’s economy by doubling the share of foreign investment in Mexico. However, earlier this year the finance ministry…
