During the 1994 Peso crisis, I started an e-mail newsletter. This followed from my comments to Mexican interest groups and list servers on the rapidly expanding Internet. The newsletter became a copyright publication : "The Mexican Commentary." This had a limited paid subscriber base but has been discontinued.
Robert Rubin was criticized for the Mexican bailout from the U.S. Treasury but I commented that the US taxpayer benefited greatly - at that time borrowing with T-bills at 5% and lending it to the Mexicans at 10%. The Mexican economy was expected to collapse but I continued to follow the economic developments in my newsletter covering employment, interest rates, exchange rate of the peso and stock prices. This led to one of my subscribers hiring me full time at the US Department of Justice/Immigration and Naturalization Service/HQ Office of Intelligence. My comments then became restricted to an internal Government publication "Borderline."
My prior career was devoted to Agricultural Statistics 18 years with the USDA and 6 years with the EPA in the Office of Pesticide Programs.
I have since retired from Federal Government service in 2005 and currently take on consulting assignments and manage my family investment portfolios. I continue to have an interest in Mexican stocks.
