The Measures or Economic Resource
During the conference presented in previous days, the President of Mexico Andrés Manuel López Obrador, I request the Secretary of Finance and Public Credit (SHCP) the Lic. Arturo Herrera Gutiérrez, who reported on the measures or economic resources that would be taken to support the population in relation to the coronavirus contingency (COVID-19).
That said, the head of the SHCP mentioned that in order to address the situation, the resources for health programs for the second quarter of 2020 (April-June) would be advanced, making transfers to the states in the amount of 10,billion pesos, in addition to those allocated in the first quarter (January-March). However, it does not specify the amount that each state will get, but I consider three possible scenarios:
1.- A weighting of federalized spending recorded in 2019 was used, in which the states most benefited would be: State of Mexico 1.140 million pesos, CDMX 941 million pesos, Veracruz 635 million pesos, Jalisco 552 million pesos, Chiapas with 475 million pesos.
2.- A weighter was used for social protection in health, in which the states most benefited would be: CDMX 2,873 million pesos, State of Mexico with 1,215 million pesos, Puebla 623 million pesos, Veracruz 558 million pesos, Chiapas with 552 million pesos.
3.- A weighting was used that corresponds to the fund of contributions for health services, where the states most benefited would be: State of Mexico with 1,054 million pesos, Veracruz 667 million pesos, Guerrero with 514 million pesos, Jalisco 490 million pesos, Oaxaca 465 million pesos.
As we can observe in the aforementioned scenarios, the states most benefited would be the State of Mexico and Mexico City, that is why, in Bandala | Díaz | García, we know that with the conjuncture of the coronavirus COVID-19, and the economic effects that we are presenting are alarming, that is why keeping informed about the decisions that are being taken in the country are of importance, so we invite you to know our social networks where you can keep informed with relevant news that may be of your help.
