Comments on: Mexico’s reversal of fortune http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2014/01/17/mexicos-reversal-of-fortune/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Bartboy http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2014/01/17/mexicos-reversal-of-fortune/#comment-83430 Thu, 23 Jan 2014 05:25:46 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=27381#comment-83430 Mr. Regenstreif seems to know little or nothing about reality on the ground in Mexico. Mexico is a failed state. The government is a criminal organization. The justice system is in total collapse and has always been. 99% of all crimes committed are never brought to justice. The economy is strapped in all directions by monopoly and oligarchy. And the elites are at war with eachother (60,000 killed in the past six years). And Mr. Regenstreif thinks this is a formula for economic growth? Mexico will continue to devolve into total chaos since the elites do not want to reform the only thing that can save the country: the justice system. The President bought the last election by handing out supermarket gift cards to the poor. His reforms are nothing more than re-arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.

Even though it has problems is still one of the biggest economies of the world is the 12 biggest economy in the world. With the reforms it will bring more private investment and more opportunities to the Mexicans. The Education Reform will help them to be more competitive . Mexico already graduate more Engineers than the USA. They just need to implement a better structure to increase on human capital. Mexico will soon become one of the biggest economies of the world. The USA depends as much as Mexico as Mexico depends on the USA. Mexico buys the most made American Products more than any BRIC country.

However, strongly enforcing illegal immigration will ultimately have a positive effect. Some people think that anybody behind strong efforts to stop illegals, are terrible, mean people. But in reality, it is the only way to actually change Mexico for the better. As long as the easy out exists (hopping over the border), nothing down there will change. Unfortunately, they have to be given no options, other than to fix their country themselves.

Second , if it did Panama would still leave it in the dust . I live in Mexico and have for years , they talk a big game but no way of fully implementing their new found focus .
Although the new President talks up change , there will be very little . Still massive drug wars , bodies found routinely and massive infrastructure failures , things are looking grim in many areas .Really long road from 3rd world /emerging nation to first world countries .
Now with inflation nearing 4% and the taxes for products going up considerably , we feel it’s feeble comeback will be short lived ..

Should we not do the same for Pena Nieto at this point? The man can’t succeed unless most support his policies and efforts over time, particularly so long as he is moving in the right direction with appropriate priorities.

The inflation is triggered by the major food chains. Ley.s started it then soriana’s followed then by the others. They have managed to monopolize and are doubling, sometimes quadrupling prices. Especially on anything imported. Hyperinflation is earnestly out of control. Added by shipping companies compromising NAFTA trade reforms, by overpricing shipments as well as charging double the import tax.

Historically Mexicans have to the US to work for higher wages than they could earn back home but if you think they desire Mexico to become just like the US and wouldn’t fight to the death to prevent it then you dont know anything about Mexico.
