Resumen

MILLAN-VALENZUELA, Henio  y  PEREZ-ARCHUNDIA, Eduardo. Education, Poverty and Crime: Links of Violence in Mexico?. Convergencia [online]. 2019, vol.26, n.80, 01. ISSN 2448-5799.  https://doi.org/10.29101/crcs.v26i80.10872.

The goal is to analyze the influence of poverty and education on crime, especially on the recent wave of violence in Mexico. The methodology used consists in ten lineal regression models, which proceed in a deductive way, up to when determination coefficient does not increase. Results point out that influence is indirect in the case of violent crime; and direct, in the rest of cases. In both, crime prevails when certain low threshold of poverty and high level of educational are reached. First conclusion: the rent-extraction model of political management imposes these conditions; this way, it sets up an administrated impunity. Second: when the State becomes weak and loses control, owing to power dispersion and neo-liberal policies, impunity becomes generalized and loses its administrated character. This way violent crime is unlashed.

Palabras llave : education; poverty; crime; violence; Mexico.
