520 1  "This book addresses two questions that are crucial to 
       understanding Mexico's current economic, political, and 
       social 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 answers to those questions lie in the 
       ways in which Mexico's long history of authoritarian rule 
       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."--BOOK JACKET.
