A Call For Tough Love In Mexico

I have read several articles on Mexico and the measures that the U.S. and several countries are going to take to help Mexico ("Washington to the rescue. Now, about the price..." International Business, Jan. 30). My response is: Do not lend any more money to this damned country.

The only people who benefit are the politicians like Salinas, who privatized several very important state companies and became one of the richest men in the world. He lied to all of us citizens of Mexico, saying that everything was O.K.

Yes, everything was O.K. for him. However, he led the country to become nearly bankrupt and transformed more than half of the population into street vendors.
