Abstract

This chapter examines the dollarization debate in Mexico. It explains the political economy of dollarization by disaggregating interests among key domestic actors, and considering the policymaking context, i.e. the status quo. It argues that the costs and benefits of dollarization must be assessed in the specific context of current Mexican politics to make sense of the debate.
