Abstract

This work identifies the agreements and disagreements that exist among Mexican economists with respect to key economic issues, on the basis of a survey applied to three hundred sixty of them. Among the proposals that provoked greater consensus are: a fair income distribution, the effective enactment of antitrust laws and consumer protection laws, and the use of countercyclical fiscal policies. On the other hand, the proposals that provoked greater discord are: private investment in the energy sector, the determinants of inflation, the minimum wage as a cause of unemployment, and the objectives that an autonomous central bank should follow.
