  • Jose G. Vargas-Hernandez


This paper has the purpose to analyze most recent economic and political changes in the Mexican States, which show a clear transitional tendency from an entrepreneurial state toward a state of entrepreneurs through the following stages: The PRI-presidential Mexican Entrepreneurial State with an emphasis in the welfare state model,followed by a period marked by the transition of the Mexican State focused on a neoliberal PRI-presidential reinventing of the state, as the result of the economic and political impact of globalization and its pervasive effects on an inequal income distribution, weak governance, political instability and lack of property security, besides a new relation´s interface between government and entreprises. Finally, the regime’s transition under the change of party in power opens the stage of a Mexican State of Entrepreneurs in the new period PAN-presidentialist.
