A perspective on Mexico

By Richard W. Fisher

Abstract

Remarks for the Jose Cuervo Tequila Talk, Institute of the Americas, La Jolla, California, April 5, 2006 ; "For Mexico and the U.S. states along its border, the stakes are high. Geographic proximity to the United States and ease of transport are key aspects of Mexico's comparative advantage vis-a-vis nations in Asia and Eastern Europe. A loss of competitiveness in Mexico is a loss for the entire border economy, where so much of our growth is linked to expansion on the more populous Mexican side. We must pay greater attention to the changes in infrastructure, regulations and other areas that are needed to maximize mutual economic benefit from trade."Mexico ; Monetary policy ; Financial stability ; Education - Economic aspects ; Labor policy ; Emigration and immigration ; International trade
