Considering the demographic changes experienced by the Mexican population in recent decades, the accumulated social debt becomes even more urgent as time is running time of «return» that would have been able to contribute to providing the «demographic bonus». The aging of the population highlights the need for political reforms that not only cover the backlog in social services but give guarantees to a population that will support higher rates of dependency in a context where poverty has not declined significantly, despite efforts of innovative programs implemented. As a result of the fragmentation of Public Policy, currently being given to social policy the challenge posed by the cracks which has left economic policy. However, if no policies are designed to integrate this division and are not followed the directions are reversed here, the much-vaunted voucher will end up being a heavy bill to pay greater inequality and poverty.
