Mexico City Getting Glam Makeover

The Federal District, the largest city in the Western Hemisphere, the city built on a drained Lake Texcoco, the city with more smog than Los Angeles — yeah, that city — is planning a beautification project.  The plan is as big as the mammoth city itself: Turn a seedy metro hub into Mexico City’s Times Square; clear swarms of feisty vendors and remodel the historic Alameda Central; illuminate the plazas and walkways of a park twice the size of New York’s Central Park.  In my humble opinion, another example of the wealth and potential of Mexico.  Don’t sleep on the opportunities in Mexico.

Mexico’s Slim Wants Soccer Universe

“El Gordo” Slim is in no hurry to go on a diet.  He has an insatiable appetite for conquest.  His latest target: the Mexican Federation of Football.  Carlos Slim is part owner of two soccer teams. That’s not unusual in Mexico, but he is now in a feud with TV networks over broadcast rights.  The fear is that he will simply use his wealth to create his own network which will feature his teams.

Mexican Prez Proposes Privatized Oil

I’ve always believed in the fundamentals of the Mexican economy.  That is, if the bureaucrats and the thieves could get out of the way.  Mexico has more resources pound for pound than most other economies in the world, and there is no reason that the Mexican economy should not be among the world’s leaders.  Well, now that the U.S. is experiencing an oil and gas bonanza of its own, the Mexican government is starting to reevaluate its position on State Oil.  Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto proposed on Monday lifting a decades-old ban on private companies investing in the state-run oil industry, a cornerstone of Mexico’s national pride that’s seen production plummet in recent decades.  Finally, it’s time to consider an alternative to State Oil.  Well, Mexico, what took you so long!

Mexican Prez Peña Nieto Proposes Social Programs

Just in case you’re not paying attention and despite its well-publicized drug-fueled instability, Mexico is threatening to become a real economic powerhouse.  Now President Enrique Pena Nieto is proposing sweeping changes to Mexico’s social programs, laying out a plan for the country’s first nationwide pensions and unemployment insurance to be financed in part by cutting tax loopholes for big business.  If it’s not careful, Mexico could become a serious country.  While Brazil is the country of tomorrow and always will be, Mexico has a lot of interesting things besides its beaches going on just south of the border today.  Viva Zapata!

Matamoros, Mexico Inviting Spring Break Crowd

When I was in school in Texas, the place to go “locally” for Spring Break was South Padre Island, Texas. Now a little town not too far across the border on the Mexico side is vying for some of that Spring Break action. Only now, Matamoros isn’t such a small town anymore. Matamoros has a history of boom and bust, and NAFTA hasn’t done a lot to change that. And right now, they’re trying to ride tourism back to the boom times. For those souls brave enough to cross the border into a little slice of the Wild West, Matamoros hopes you will let the good times roll.
