Already the signs of explosion are proliferating. Drug traffic and the vast network of employment opportunities it generates in Mexico are growing far faster than the Mexican government can manage. Crime is so widespread and the corruption it generates is so deeply entrenched among business leaders and government agencies that mass demonstrations demand increasingly basic change just when economic flows steadily worsen Mexico's social situation.

Globalized capitalism is a chain as strong as its weakest link. The economic crisis that began with the subprime mortgage collapse in the US has since spread via the globalized credit and trade system to the rest of the world. Its terrible economic and social costs and consequences will soon expose the currently weakest links in the chain. Mexico may prove to be one of them.
