Is that the PRI in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

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.
