Guillermo Barba (GB): Welcome to this country. Please tell me, why did you come to Mexico this time?
Nomi Prins (NP): I came to Mexico City to give a talk on “US Elections: Economic Policy and Global Financial Implications” on behalf of the Aspen Institute, Mexico and Unifimex. I had spoken at their invitation last August regarding US interest rates, The Federal Reserve, what The Bank of Mexico might do, and how that could effect the Peso and markets. A few years ago, I addressed the Mexican Senate on the problems of “too big to fail” and the high concentration of foreign banks in Mexico. I’ve been following the political and economic relationship between our two countries for some time, including in my book, All the Presidents’ Bankers (particularly the Bill Clinton chapter). Next week, I will be speaking at the Tecnologico de Monterrey in Guadalajara on Trends in Global Banking and Financial Markets.
