Gov. Brown will see Mexico’s low taxes in action

By John Seiler | Cal Watchdog

Gov. Jerry Brown today announced that in July he will lead a California trade mission to Mexico. He “will be joined by a diverse delegation of California government, business, economic development, investment and policy leaders on the Mission, which will be organized by the California Chamber of Commerce,” according to his offices announcement.

“The Mission will focus on boosting direct investment in the state, expanding bilateral economic and environmental cooperation and connecting California businesses with new opportunities and partnerships.”

He also will witness a Mexico that’s much different from the country that crashed and nearly collapsed just two decades ago during the 1994-95 Mexican Peso Crisis. Since then, Mexico has conducted numerous free-market reforms, first under the Presidente Ernesto Zedillo from 1994 to 2000 and his Institutional Revolutionary Party, which had ruled the country for decades.
