ON-Lion Letter

Amid global economic uncertainty, intellectual and public-policy discourse seems to have shifted to the topics of income inequality and wealth redistribution, putting growth and macroeconomic discipline in a second tier.

In this context, in February in Álamos in the Mexican state of Sonora, the Alamos Alliance XXII conference of 45 renowned economists, policy analysts, and current and former policymakers from virtually all corners of the globe examined "New Directions in Public Policy."  Among other things, they looked at the prospects of energy reform and the new geo-economic landscape, discussed the future of the global economy, and debated "creeping statism," income inequality, and their policy repercussions.

Pedro Aspe, one of Mexico's star reformers in the 1990s, and now one of its most-renowned investment representatives, gave the closing keynote address.
