During the Porfirian era, both the north and the south-east of Mexico underwent a tremendous economic boom and both were absorbed into the world market. Mexico's south-east began to assume traits that were characteristic of much of central America and the Caribbean. The economies of most south-eastern states were geared to one or two export crops with very little agricultural diversification and even less industry. The Peninsula of Yucatan is perhaps the most outstanding example of such a development.
All other types of violence had either completely disappeared or had greatly subsided. This reduction in the level of violence was closely linked to the formation of the Mexican state. And the precondition for the development of the Porfirian state was a constant increase of its revenues. Diaz did not want to use the means by which previous governments had attempted to increase their income (forced loans or higher taxes) since such methods contributed to driving away foreign investors and antagonizing the country's domestic oligarchy.
During his second term in office Diaz effectively prevented the election of any opponent to the Mexican Congress. By 1888 it had for all practical purposes become a rubber stamp institution. Every candidate had to receive the prior approval of Diaz to be either elected or re-elected. The now subservient Congress approved amendments to the constitution which made it possible for Diaz to 'accede' to the wishes of the population and have himself re-elected in 1888,1892 (in that year the constitution was changed so as to extend the presidential terms to six years), 1898, 1904 and 1910.
