Resumen

HERNANDEZ RODRIGUEZ, Rogelio. Between Technocratic Rationality and Governance: The Importance of Political Consensus in Mexico. Rev. mex. cienc. polít. soc [online]. 2014, vol.59, n.222, pp.353-368. ISSN 0185-1918.

Since the 1980s the technocratic elite has controlled the Mexican economy, regardless of whether the country is governed by the Partido Revolucionario Institucional or an opposition party. On top of showing an uncommitted stance in ideological or party terms, the elite has maintained a strict control of national public finances thus generating considerable political and electoral consequences in the country. Regardless of whether there exist or not different economic options, the main problem lies in that this elite has been unable to gain the society's support. The rationality that characterizes this elite does not admit communication with society nor does it take into consideration its opinion concerning the decisions they take. This has led to an extreme politicization of economic decisions of political parties. This article intends to expose the features of the Mexican technocracy, its development and survival during the transition, as well as the mediation flaws that have impeded communication between the society and governmental authorities concerning the development and implementation of economic measures.

Palabras llave : elites; Mexico; governance; political consensus; technocratic rationality.
