President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, assured that the measurement of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) should be eliminated and the focus should be on measuring the well-being and happiness of Mexicans.
During his morning conference, the president pointed out that, “We walk in that”He also explained that his government is applying an alternative economic model, far from the policies of international organizations in order to benefit the poorest people. “There is already a country in Europe that says that it is going to change the parameters and that they want to put aside the famous Gross Domestic Product, the GDP to measure and that they are going to add to economic, material growth, well-being, even the happiness of the people, of the people, that is what we are doing, that is our alternative model ”he added.
In that same order, the Executive explained that this new model, the development plan for the country is no longer imposed, but that arises from the needs of the people, its resources and the power that Mexico has to strengthen its economy.
“It is not what the neoliberals used to do, if it rains hard above it drips down, it had to be given above because it permeated below, as if wealth were contagious, and no. You have to give from the bottom up, to everyone, try to get everyone to benefit, but starting with those from below, because that helps those from above, if people have the purchasing power, commerce and industry will improve ”, said.
He also stated that the work they are doing in the current administration is concentrating on delivering resources to the poorest population in the country to strengthen consumer power and thereby benefit all sectors. So he remembered that Starting this month, around 100 billion pesos per month will be being delivered through social programs and credits in order to reactivate the economy.
“We must take into account the wives and children nothing that the head of the family grabs the money and wastes it, this in general because it applies to the government, how much or how little we have we have to distribute it fairly, that it is the conception that we have is what the adversaries do not accept, if you have a budget it belongs to everyone, it is public and you have to seek to distribute the budget with equity ”, he pointed out.
