Neither the country walks well nor is advancing in the fight against crime


“The country is going well,” said President Andrés Manuel López Obrador at his past Monday press conference.

But how well?

As far as the economy is concerned, nothing good. In addition to that it is in recession, the forecasts of various national and foreign institutions indicate that in 2022 the gross domestic product (GDP) will grow less than expected at the end of last year.

Let’s see how they have corrected their estimates of growth of the Mexican economy:

Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean of the UN (ECLAC): From 3.2 to 2.9 percent.

International Monetary Fund (IMF): From 4.0 to 2.8 percent.

Organization for cooperation and economic development (OECD): From 3.3 to 2.3 percent.

BBVA Mexico: From 3.2 to 2.2 percent.

Mexican Institute of Finance Executives (IMEF): from 2.7 to 2.0 percent.

Citibanamex Survey of Expectations among 32 specialists: from 2.2 to 2.1 percent.

Specialists surveyed by Banco de México: from 2.79 to 2.27 percent.

Bank of America: from 2.5 to 1.5 percent.

Trading Economics: From 4.5 to 1.0 percent.

Focus Economics: From 2.8 to 2.6 percent.

And as far as security and crime is concerned, it is difficult to share the optimism that Avlo and its Security Secretary and Citizen Protection, Rosa Icela Rodríguez, showed last Monday.

Let’s see the January data of this year and compare them with the same month of 2021. Next, write the crime, followed by the number of cases recorded by 2021, then in 2022 and its increase or decrease in percent.
