Mexico's cash cow, an introduction
Voice of Mexico
Imagine not being able to get gas for over 10 days. It would be hard to get to work or bring the kids to school, not to mention the supermarket not getting any fresh food, nor your favorite restaurant. Annoying, right? Back in 1938 not a lot of Mexicans had cars, nor did they have supermarkets, but president Lázaro Cárdenas was annoyed enough over the fact that trains couldn´t run normally, disrupting public life completely. Unlike us, however, he did have the power to do something about it.
