Mexicans working in other countries are sending less money home, threatening businesses, stalling construction and choking cash flow to hamlets where as much as half the population works in the United States.

I read some threads in the Mexico forum about how "resiliant" their economy was. It was growing at 8%. Go sweat shop labor!

In Mexico, businesses that once thrived selling everything from beds to bricks to the families of migrants have laid off workers. In this town of verdant fields beneath the snow-clad slopes of the Iztaccihuatl volcano, there's little left to rely on but small farms.
LOL, I wonder if this guy really came to Amecameca (the town of verdant fields beneath the iztlaccihuatl volcano, AKA the sleeping woman) or he's just making it up, so far the economy here keeps booming, and it hasn't shown signs of slowing down.
