In Mexico, Mr Slim's investing strategy has won him the reputation as a lender of last resort, bailing out numerous companies in transactions that almost always turned out very well for the billionaire. Eduardo García, director of Sentido Común, an online business publication in Mexico, said the Times deal is no different. "He is playing it as a banker at the moment: a banker of last resort," he says, pointing out that it is also particularly attractive for Mr Slim. It leaves him with a foot wedged in the newspaper's front door, if he changes his tactic.
