At Mexico College, Students Make Ideas Fly

October 05, 2017

Industries in Mexico

As students arrive for the 2017/2018 academic year at Mexico’s CETYS University, the learning that takes place here is as easy to spot as the big yellow airplane suspended from the ceiling of the Thermo-Fluids Lab on the Mexicali campus.

A NAFTA Update For The Border Region

September 22, 2017

NAFTA

With more than a half-trillion dollars of U.S.-Mexico trade each year and five million jobs across the United States that depend on it, there is much at stake for businesses and workers throughout the country as representatives from the United States, Canada, and Mexico continue the first round of negotiations in Washington to update the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Industries in Mexico

Mexico has a lot of well-known problems. Drugs. Poverty. Corruption. And on the corporate side, low-levels of production outside of the major multinational owned manufacturing firms. But despite the campaign rhetoric to build a wall and to knock Mexico down a peg in a NAFTA do-over, there is one problem our neighbor does not have: beating every single equity market in the Americas to a pulp.


For investors, Mexico is great...again. After a slight lull in affection back in April, the... Continue reading

After 23 years, it’s time for a NAFTA do-over

August 21, 2017

NAFTA

The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) went into force on January 1, 1994. That week, I happened to be at the massive Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, and NAFTA was the talk of the floor. It was the beginning of the rush for the border, where large manufacturing corporations had hopes of reducing labor costs while staying close to their largest consumer market—the United States.


Many of the large companies at CES were encouraged by the terms of NAFTA, especiall... Continue reading

Renegotiation of the deal is likely to start late this year.<... Continue reading
