Ernesto Zedillo Ponce de León is a Mexican economist and politician. He was President of Mexico from 1 December 1994 to 30 November 2000, as the last of the uninterrupted 71-year line of Mexican presidents from the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI). Since leaving office, he has been in the pay of corporations to further globalist agendas.


During his presidency, he faced one of the worst economic crises in Mexico's history, which started only weeks after he took office.[1][2] He distanced himself from his predecessor Carlos Salinas de Gortari, blaming his administration for the crisis (although President Zedillo himself did not deviate from the neoliberal policies of his two predecessors),[1][3] and oversaw the arrest of his brother Raúl Salinas de Gortari.[4] His administration was also marked, among other things, by renewed clashes with the EZLN and the Popular Revolutionary Army;[5] the controversial implementation of Fobaproa to bail out the national banks;[6]; and the Aguas Blancas and Acteal massacres perpetrated by State forces.[7][8]

Although Zedillo's policies eventually led to a relative economic recovery, popular discontent with seven decades of PRI rule led to the party losing, for the first time, its legislative majority in the 1997 midterm elections,[9] and in the 2000 general election the right-wing opposition National Action Party's candidate Vicente Fox won the Presidency of the Republic, putting an end to 71 years of uninterrupted PRI rule.[10] Zedillo's admission of the PRI's defeat and his peaceful handing of power to his successor improved his image in the final months of his administration, and he left office with an approval rating of 60%.[11]


Since the ending of his term as president in 2000, Zedillo has been a leading voice on globalization, especially its impact on relations between developed and developing nations.

He now sits on lucrative board positions in large corporations; and in globalist think tanks funded by billionaires like Bill Gates, George Soros, Nicolas Berggruen and others. Part of this is reward for services rendered as president, part is for being a respectable face outwards for these agendas.

In 2008, a conference on global climate change was convened at Yale, resulting in a published volume edited by Zedillo.[12]

Corporate boards

Other organizations

In 2009, Zedillo headed an external review of the World Bank Group's governance.[25] Since 2019, he has been serving on the High-Level Council on Leadership & Management for Development of the Aspen Management Partnership for Health (AMP Health).[26] In 2020, he joined the Independent Panel for Pandemic Preparedness and Response (IPPR), an "independent" group examining how the WHO and countries handled the COVID-19 pandemic, co-chaired by Helen Clark and Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.[27]

In 2016, Zedillo co-signed a letter calling for an end to the War on Drugs, along with people like Mary J. Blige, Jesse Jackson and George Soros.[28]
