Correct me if i am wrong, but aren't the rich pushing out the poor in Mexico? I see it happening in the states is the main reason i bring it up. As an area begins to flourish economically the taxes are raised, more expensive amenities seem to show up (Starbucks, Stone Slab Creamery(think ice cream - $5 for a cone of ice cream at that!), Panera Bread, etc.), & housing goes through the roof at a premium. This pushes the middle class and lower class out of the area quickly due to rising costs of living. If Mexico and the US come under some kind of trade/labor/whatever agreement, then won't the US dollar loose even more value, job wages go down across the board, & a general sense of American patriotism drop even more?
This kind of an agreement/trade "opportunity" will bring the standard of living up in Mexico, but bring the standard of living in the US down to compensate. Is this a good idea?
On another note, why isn't Mexico trying to fix it's own problems? Why does the US have to be the answer for their financial/economic woes? I understand there is corruption at the highest levels of government there (as well as here for that matter), but come on!
Am i completely off base here?
