Inequality in Mexico

Webcast available

Webcast Recap

Mexico's economic inequality has inhibited the country's economic growth and slowed the potential of its social and human capital. And extreme inequality has worsened over the last 20 years, with economic elites capturing most of the benefits of growth. The political and economic implications are huge.

Oxfam Mexico recently issued a study on Mexico's inequality and its policy implications, and the study's findings will be presented and discussed at this forum on July 7, 9-11am. The study was authored by Gerardo Esquivel, professor and researcher at the Center for Economic Studies in the Colegio de Mexico.
