Pittsburgh Speakers Series: Vicente Fox
[ venue info
Vicente Fox, the former president of Mexico, talks about the contemporary geo-political landscape and the role of business in the developing world.
When elected to the presidency of Mexico in 2000, Vicente Fox broke the stranglehold that the ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party had held on the state for seven decades. A charismatic reformer, Fox is credited as playing a vital role in Mexico's democratization, and with strengthening the country's economy. During his tenure, Fox succeeded in controlling inflation and interest rates, and in achieving the lowest unemployment rate in all of Latin America.
