During his presentation, Mr. Salinas said that good public policy design is
crucial for developing economies. He also noted the importance of cultural
change and a revolution in education to promote future generations.

With fun culinary analogies, Jacques Rogozinski shares his views and
experiences as an official of international financial organizations, and
recommends not following recipes prepared elsewhere. Instead, he says that
countries should find their own economic seasoning.

Ricardo Salinas said that the "recipe should nourish the development of
productive sectors, competition and equal opportunities through education.
Wealth does not occur by decree, but requires a favorable growth environment
for companies and the development of entrepreneurs to increase the well-being
of society."

Mr. Salinas is an opinion leader who writes on an array of topics. To learn
