Chapter 6 examines the period from 1970 to 1983 marked by continued economic growth but also by the reemergence of inflation and balance of payments crises in 1976 and 1982. It recounts the change in development strategy from stabilizing development to shared development under the Echeverría administration (1970–1976) and the failed attempt at tax reform in 1972 that was followed by increasing macroeconomic imbalances and the 1976 balance of payments crisis. It also examines the oil boom from 1978 to 1981 and the 1982 debt crisis under the Lopez Portillo administration (1976–1982). Finally, the chapter discusses alternative interpretations of the domestic causes of the 1976 and 1982 crises.
