The Economist is a financial-focused newspaper founded in 1843, Today, The Economist has expanded its journalism online, onto its app, and into podcasts, films, interactive infographics, and social media. 

According to The Economist, Andrés Manuel López Obrador has long railed against corruption. But on January 30th a consortium of news outlets reported that in 2006 his campaign team had accepted $2m from drug gangs in return for favours. The reports, based on information from the US Drug Enforcement Administration, do not show that the president knew what was going on. But a close aide did, they allege. Mr López Obrador completely rejects the allegations, calling them slander.

These reports follow others. A recent article on a local news site alleged that Mr López Obrador’s third son, Gonzalo López Beltrán, ran a network overcharging contractors supplying materials for the Tren Maya, a tourist train that is one of his father’s pet projects. In 2022 his eldest, José Ramón, was revealed to have been living in a luxury pad in Houston connected to a contractor for Pemex, the state oil company. Mr López Obrador and his family have denied any wrongdoing in all of these cases.
