Lazaro Cardenas is a young, dynamic port, leader in the market of handling commercial cargo that has maintained an annual growth of 13.46 percent during the last decade.
The Port of Lazaro Cardenas is the deepest port in Mexico, due to the fact that its access channel counts with a depth of 16.5 meters, which allows the arrival of ships of up to 150,000 tons.
Michoacan’s Governor, Lazaro Cardenas Batel, considers this port as a strategic point for the state’s development, which since October 2002 is now arguably Mexico’s principal port receiving Asia-Pacific shipping traffic.

 Lázaro Cárdenas - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
During Cardenas's presidency, the government redistributed millions of acres of land to peasants, and urban and industrial workers gained unprecedented unionization rights and wage increases.
However, Cardenas and subsequent presidents also used the PRN and its successor, the Party of the Institutional Revolution, or PRI, to maintain political control; leaders of the worker and campesino organizations delivered votes and suppressed protests in exchange for personal favors and concessions to their constituencies.
Also central to Cardenas's project were nationalistic economic policies involving Mexico's vast oil production, which had soared following strikes in 1910 in the area known as the "Golden Lane," near Tampico, and which made Mexico the world's second-largest oil producer by 1921, supplying approximately 20 percent of domestic demand in the United States.

 Raising “Lázaro” from the Dead? by Lawrence Herzog - The Globalist > > Global Politics
A cross between Abraham Lincoln and Franklin D. Roosevelt, Lázaro Cardenas was born in 1895, to a lower middle class family in a small town in Michoacán, Mexico.
Cardenas not only refused all perks, he publicly challenged the principle of bribery, and made personal honesty a staple of his political career.
Cardenas — in a surprising and bold move — ordered that Calles and twenty of his inner circle be rounded up and deported to the United States.

 Online NewsHour: Cuahtemoc Cardenas -- August 12, 1997
Cardenas is a 63-year-old professional politician who’s been trying for over a decade to end nearly 70 years of one-party rule in Mexico.
Like his father, Cuauhtemoc Cardenas was also a member of the PRI until he broke with it a decade ago to form his own political party.
CUAUHTEMOC CARDENAS: Well, he has to defend his positions, his government, his party, but I think that any election is in a way a referendum, so people voted, the majority against the PRI, what the PRI represents, against the present policies; that's against the deterioration of living standards, against the increase of unemployment.

Cardenas senior is praised for nationalizing the oil industry, for carrying out land reform, for protecting the Mexican workers, for social measures generally in protection of the poor and for protecting Mexico against the rapaciousness of U.
Cuauhtemoc Cardenas was the founder of the PRD, a party which Oleg recognizes as having "a theme that Mexico should return to the basic policies of Lazaro Cardenas or some improved variation of them".

Moments later, 30 or so police officers in a full riot gear come jogging down Lazaro Cardenas followed by a pickup truck full of merchandise seized from street vendors: umbrellas, telephones, and stuffed animals are visible atop the pile.
As for the CD vendors on Lazaro Cardenas Street, the $150 weekly police payoff -- which Mexicans term "la mordida" ("the bite") -- takes a big chunk out of their profits.

 Legal maneuvers put Mexican port in a sea of trouble
Success for the Port of Lazaro Cardenas in Mexico is bringing controversy in its wake.
Paratore agrees, feeling that what TMM and SSA Mexico really fear is the competition from Lazaro Cardenas with its deep sea docking facilities, with a 50-foot depth at one of its docks handling as much as 120,000 tons of cargo.
Lazaro Cardenas also has a rail spur, co-owned in part, ironically, by TMM’s TFM Northeast Railroad and Kansas City Southern.

While the then President of Mexico encouraged foreign business in Mexico, the revolution in 1917 changed everything, declaring that the oil belonged to Mexico.
This was not enforced until 1938 when President Lazaro Cardenas nationalised all the countries oil holdings and created a national oil company - Petroleos Mexicanos.
A major new strike in 1972 bolstered the struggling company and by the early 1980s Pemex was funding half of the Mexican government budget.
