The Political Economy of The Telecommunications Reform in Mexico

Mar 30, 2021

The paper analyses the telecommunications and competition reforms implemented during the Peña Nieto administration in 2013-2014. It analyzes the economic impact as well as the political process that shaped the reform and the main rulings. It finds that broadcast TV has far more political power than the size of the industry shows. It also finds that the constitutional amendments were an attempt by politicians to control both media moguls and substantial market power in the telecommunications sector.
