For those of you wondering why Carlos Slim didn’t fight harder about EPN’s telecom reforms, here’s some tantalizing information.
Slim’s yerno, (Slim Shady Jr.?) has won the design contract for a $9.5 billion airport project from the Mexican government.
Thats dollars, not pesos, people.
Now sure, Slim’s not getting the whole $9.5 billion (yet). Design costs are like 5-10 percent so it’s a mere $425-$950 million. And they have a beard as well, Sir Norman Fraser, who’ll need paid off.
Still it’s a pretty good start for the ever resourceful Slim, who has had the PRI in his pocket since the early 1990s.
