Calderón in the US, Part 2: On Slim

(First, thanks to Blogger for finally fixing their problems.)

Calderón toots his own horn:
I respect Slim, or any Mexican business. But, at the same time, I am the authority and I must regulate the market to avoid monopolistic practices.
All of the anti-monopoly, pro-competition stuff passed over the last several weeks could well turn into the Calderón era's most significant advance (and not all of it is his doing, as the quote seems to indicate), provided that the regulatory advances aren't washed away by a future of administration. And given how many other things the administration has focused on, both in rhetoric and in practice , it feels almost as though it were an afterthought.
