Calderon's 100 proposals

To the outside observer, it seems like each of the five candidates for the presidency is trying to come up with a larger number of promises. Calderon now appears to have attained the most, 100 specific items introduced in a pamphlet distributed at a recent campaign rally. However, there is a qualitative difference. The other candidates, especially AMLO talk about direct hand outs to the poor, but Calderon talks about subsidies to companies who create jobs. On other points, Calderon's proposals seem more substantive and well thought out rather than headline grabbing.

The question to be answered on July 2: will the voters agree?
