Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) won Mexico’s elections this past weekend. For many people, this means the beginning of Socialism in Mexico. Mexico isn’t some random country, its the largest Spanish-speaking economy in the world and the 3rd largest economy in the Western Hemisphere. Mexico City’s influence reaches various corners of the world via its mass media productions. On top of that, Mexico is the most important country bordering the USA, one of the top five trading partners of the USA, and a major source of immigrants.

Will Socialism spread quicker through Latin America and maybe even spread into the USA via the new Mexican connection?

What effects will AMLO’s Socialist policies have on immigration to the USA? Will Mexico suffer a surge of emigration to levels similar as what Venezuela is now suffering?

Is Mexico going to become ground zero from where the Socialists and Communists will launch their direct attacks to what they call the evil empire (aka, USA)?

It was always inconceivable that a country like Mexico would ever turn to the deep left in politics, yet here is 2018 making the impossible not just a possibility, but down right a reality!

Obrador might be a bit more leftish than EPN, but he's hardly an ideologue. He's been around a long, long time in Mexican politics and he's been able to shift his policies as need be, over 5 decades in the public eye.

I think he is kind of Lula or Jose Mujica left wing but not really socialist Cuban style or Venezuelan.
I think Mexico needs a government who looks to the poorest, Mexico has minimum wage and medium wages inferior to Brazil both with similar GPD per capita.

Talk about alarmist. Just what has right leaning governments achieved in Mexico over their reign in power. Time another side had a shot at power. Somehow that will at least acknowledge epidemic corruption is the root of a lot of the problems and at least talk of doing something about it.
Nothing remotely akin to Venezuela or Cuba. Does the word socialist or left leaning really promote so much fear in the eyes of the OP? Does not another approach to obviously failed neoliberal policies in so much of the world, at least warrant a trial change of direction?

latin america does not like adam smith and he told them exactly what was holding them back. The church and the crown.


Cuba should be annexed by the US. Communists don't know how to rule that country. Its prime real estate. 90 miles from florida and great soil. THe US could grow everything fruit that it imports there. Such as a waste.

You'd think by now that the masses in Latin America would realize they aren't getting anywhere by trying the socialism route. The elites that (terribly) run these countries will just bail for NY, Miami or even Spain until the experiment collapses and then rush back in to re-establish their fiefdoms. Entrepreneurship, education and the rule of law are the only things that would break the grip of the oligarchy and socialist swindlers.
