Taming the Market in a Globalized Economy
This chapter covers a number of critical socioeconomic policies, including foreign economic, budgetary, and tax policies as well as pension reform and health policies. The central issue here is the administration's capacity to reduce inequality and improve pensions and health, while simultaneously pursuing macroeconomic policies that favor fiscal savings, free trade agreements, and low taxes. The chapter also discusses the role of Presidential Advisory Commissions in two specific cases: the problem of inequality, and the pension reform enacted in March 2008. The health-care policies of the administration, including the expansion of the AUGE program, the problems encountered in the implementation of the program, as well as budgetary increases, and general problems affecting the public health sector, are also included in the analysis.
