“What Would an AMLO Presidency Mean for Mexico?” Amanda Mattingly, Latin America Advisor, February 2018

In a recent Latin America Advisor Q&A, TAG Senior Director Amanda Mattingly commented on the possibility of Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) being elected as the next president of Mexico. Mattingly said, “If successful in July, AMLO’s election as president would likely spook financial markets in the short term, resulting in a period of capital flight from Mexico, a cooling of foreign investment and a further slump in growth. To some extent, this is already happening, given that AMLO has been leading in the polls for several months and NAFTA negotiations have been hanging in the balance for over a year.” Mattingly’s comments on AMLO were also picked up in the El Heraldo de México on February 23, 2018.
