Felipe Calderón served a six-year term as president of Mexico, serving as the nation’s second democratically elected president since the end of the Institutional Revolutionary Party’s 70-year hold on power. He is credited with having boosted the nation’s economic development as a pro-business, pro-free market leader and having made significant reforms to the country’s environmental, immigration and health care policies.
