Wrapping up 150 years of energy development in Mx

This podcast provides an insightful view of the Mexican energy sector by analyzing not only Pemex as monopoly, but adding efficiencies, cost impacts of policies, International trends, history, and a broad analysis of the energy industry in Mexico as a whole. It is an outstanding contribution to discussion.

Why Am I So Hooked On This Series?

The Mexican Oil Industry?

Based upon Brandon’s excellent podcasts on San Antonio and the Battle of Medina, I decided to at least listen to one episode of Oil and Mexico. I assured myself that it would be thorough and well done but would also contain nothing that would hold my attention.

I was WRONG! Is it Brandon’s excellent writing or his masterful way of constructing a story that led me to listen to the following episodes as well.....

I am also a bit envious of his ability to speak Spanish as if he were indeed native.

Don’t let this topic mislead you, the story of the Mexican Oil Industry is a complicated history of political and industrial involvement.
If you enjoy larger than life personalities and unscrupulous government overreach, you’ll be enthralled with this story!
