Mexican economy moving upward
I take exception to the negative headline, ``Opposition, Mayan Rebels Cry Foul in Mexican Vote,'' Aug. 24. The Mexican economy is on the upswing. Thanks to free-market reforms, gross domestic product is expected to increase by 3.8 percent this year, while inflation is down 7 percent.
To many, Ernesto Zedillo Ponce de Leon's victory solidifies these reforms, and he is expected to continue them. His Institutional Revolutionary Party won more than 50 percent of the votes, and the conservative National Action Party was second with 27 percent. The party that is crying ``foul'' is the leftist Democratic Revolution Party, which only garnered 17 percent. Patrick C. Scull, Carpinteria, Calif.
