Deputy Ildefonso Guajardostated that from the first Budget of 2022which we analyzed a year ago, we warned that unfortunately it did not comply with three fundamental elements that any Tax Package Budget must comply.
The first, be realisticnot to overestimate indicators that can still lead us to less room for maneuver, and today, as we said a year ago, the growth of the Mexican economy was calculated for 22, at 4.1 in the Economic package that they presented in 2021 and today we will be growing only at 2.4 percent.
Once again they overestimate the pace of the increaseintending to bring it to 3 percent in 2023 and with a reality that shows that most of the agencies who are making estimates, do not exceed 1.5.
Second, the inflationLike last year, we insisted to the government that it was underestimated in this case, and indeed, a year later we verified that the inflation It was twice as much as the one brought by Economic package presented in the 2021.
Now again there is a inflation from 8.9, when we are sure that it will happen to both digits.
This has implications for accounting, evaluation of the cost of debt. Already in this Budget the cost of the debt is practically increasing by 30 percent, and as points of the Gross domestic productis reaching 3.4 per hundred of GDPwhich implies that we are spending on the cost financialmore than We spend in educationmore than we spend on health.
Although the amount proportional to GDP is maintained, this does not mean that the debt does not increase. In fact, in this Tax Package they present us with the largest public deficit of the last 22 years in Mexico, 3.6 percent deficit.
This obviously defining the financial requirementsis clearly established because revenues are increasing by only 0.8 percent of the GDPwhile the expenses have a much higher increase, and therefore, there is an increase in the absolute debt and there is a clear increase in the fiscal deficit.
Unfortunately the budget Secretary of Economy it fell on average of the last 6 years until 2018 of 12 thousand millions pesos, three thousand millions of weights.
Those good intentions to promote a new development are not backed by an investment budget.
