Abstract : This paper describes and analyzes those conditions of and forces for change. After a brief description of production and export policy and practice and the growth of Petroleos Mexicanos, the effort looks to contributions to institutional change and to policy controversy directly tied to the petroleum industry. The discussion then evolves to other foci of policy disputation indirectly related to the new milieu created by anticipated petroleum earnings. Finally, in a more speculative vein, the paper gauges the significance of the new oil for political change by examining the profundity of the issues at controversy, the scope and intensity of the challenges to governmental authority, and the sectors and individuals involved in the several disputes and departures.
