The propositions eliciting the greatest consensus included: equity in income distribution, vigorous use of antitrust and consumer protection laws and the use of countercyclical fiscal policies. The most contentious issues were: private investment in the energy sector, the determinants of inflation, the minimum wage as a cause of unemployment and the objectives to be pursued by an independent central bank.
