For the fourth time in the past 20 years the Mexican economy is in financial distress largely because of bad monetary policies pursued by Mexican officials The United States has responded in all four instances by lending money to the Mexican government as a short-term palliative The cumulative result is a set of perverse incentives for Mexican officials and foreign investors that ensures the crisis will reappear on an even larger scale In addition the use of the Treasurys Exchange Stabilization Fund and the Federal Reserve to fund an administrations foreign ventures raises constitutional issues about separation of powers and under-mines the principle of central bank independenceThere is no way to avoid the costs imposed by bad economic policies of the past The best course for the future is to encourage market forces stronger private property rights price stability and a floating exchange rate for the peso Only by strengthening the institutions that produce such results will Mexico raise its standard of livingLoans from the United States and international agencies such as the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank can arrest a crisis in the short run but are counterproductive in the long run The new world order is one of market solutions not government intrusion To foster such outcomes the United States should pass legislation that eliminates the Treasurys ability to make foreign loans through the ESF and that removes the ability of the Federal Reserve through swap lines to extend credit to foreign central banks directly or indirectly by funding the ESF Congress should also withdraw its support for the IMF and the World Bank
