In the course of the week, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) He identified that within the two years that his authorities has been working, a trillion 500 billion pesos have been saved due to his fight corruption and the coverage of austerity.
It’s fascinating and essential to ask how true It’s this, past the numbers ‘exhibiting’ it, because the figures don’t say something by themselves, however relatively we’re those who give them which means (even for propaganda).
How a lot has the federal government spent?
- In 2018, final 12 months of EPN, the federal government spent 5.3 billion pesos
- In 2019, AMLO’s first 12 months, spent 5.8 billion pesos
- In 2020, spending 6.1 billion pesos
- In 2021 he considers spending 6.3 billion pesos.
With this, authorities spending has gone upward, so it have to be uncertain whether or not the federal government has saved. Particularly as a result of for AMLO’s third 12 months, spending would improve 1 trillion pesos to what EPN had.
Have there been authorities financial savings with AMLO?
What has occurred is that the federal authorities he has stopped spending on some issues (eliminating trusts, forcing bureaucrats handy over half of their Christmas bonus, decreasing the price range of autonomous our bodies by half), in an effort to spend on others (the Mayan Prepare, the Santa Lucía airport and the Dos Bocas refinery, along with shopper packages similar to Sembrando Vida, Jóvenes Construjando el Futuro and packages for older adults, which have already got as much as a constitutional stage).
If we had financial savings, the federal government ought to have spent much less yearly, not rising your price range and spending yearly. This could suggest much less taxes, discount of exterior debt, or environment friendly use of presidency assets. You will need to know, each for private funds, and for the financial system, that spending much less on one factor to spend on one other isn’t saving, it’s also spending.
It is usually fascinating that we’ve got a Funds Income Stabilization Fund (FEIP), it took us one decade in saving and alone two years during which the AMLO authorities terminated it (2019-2020), along with a Fund for contingencies, similar to Fonden, which the federal government eradicated and now presumes to be instantly delivering cash to victims.
On this sense, we should query whether or not we actually have the wholesome funds that the president presumes that Mexico has in the intervening time.
