Mexico is facing a three-fold crisis in 2020: a public health crisis, created by a faster than expected spread of the Coronavirus pandemic and a deficient response by the government; an economic crisis, estimated at a collapse of the country's GDP growth by a whopping 10.5% by the end of the year; and a political crisis, as Mexicans are less than a year from the largest election in the country's history.

These multiple crises are putting Mexico's leadership to the test, even as the country finds itself further adrift in its relationship with the United States, Latin America, and Europe. This talk breaks down and explores these different crises, and proposes a potential path out of them for Mexico in the future.
