Unlike previous Mexican leaders, he was a market-oriented President, and his time in power was one of the most difficult periods of the country thanks to his predecessor's policies. Inflation skyrocketed on an average of over 100% a year (culminating to an average of 150% between 1985 and 1987), unemployment rates soared to as much as 25% during the mid-1980's, and productivity and income were rapidly falling. This became a stark reminder of the failure of the protectionist economic policies Mexico developed since the 1930s


Although many Mexicans view de la Madrid's period as economically bleak and uneventful, this is far from true. It was during this time in which he introduced liberal economic reforms that encouraged foreign investment, as well as widespread privatisations of outdated state-run industries and reduction of tarrifs, a process that would continue under his succesors. In 1986, Mexico entered the GATT treaty, thanks to its efforts of reforming and decentralising its economy. All told, the number of state-owned industries went down from over 1,000 in 1982 to 600 in 1988. This is enough to bring him some strong support, but his administration's mishandling of the infamous 1985 earthquake in Mexico City damaged his prestige for refusing international aid.
