Country Info >> Mexico

Mexico is the second most populous and boasts the second largest economy in Latin America, both behind only Brazil.  With a free market economy that recently reach a trillion dollars, Mexico contains a mixture of modern and outmoded industry and agriculture, increasingly dominated by the private sector.  Recent administrations have expanded competition and opened up many sectors of the economy.   Income distribution remains highly unequal, with wealthier segments (those having cable TV, for example) exponentially out-spending the poor.  The increasing democratization of economic sectors is slowly contributing to an impressive economic recovery in recent years and more even distribution of wealth foreseen for the future.
