Mexico entered the lost decade of the 1980s with its economy in shambles and its political consensus under increasing pressure. The crisis would continue through the 1990s and even up to the present day. What economic challenges did Mexico face after 1982 and how did the state attempt to deal with them? What political difficulties confronted the one-party system under the PRI? How would the state address the major social problems (e.g., crime, drugs, migration, etc.) that Mexico would experience? Did the Revolution end with the fall of the perfect dictatorship in 2000 as some have claimed or does it still remain alive (explain)?
