Narcoland

Narcoland describes a disastrous 'war on drugs' that has led to more than 80,000 deaths in half a dozen years. This is a book that exposes how everything in Mexico is implicated in the 'narco system.' Anabel Hernandez, journalist and author, accuses the Mexican state of complicity with the cartels, and says the 'war on drugs' is a sham. She's had headless animals left at her door and her family have been threatened by gunmen. Narcoland became, and remains, a bestseller: more than 100,000 copies sold in Mexico. The success is impossible to overstate, a staggering figure for a non-fiction book in a country with indices of income and literacy incomparable to the American-European book-buying market.,The most remarkable feature of Anabel Hernandez's brave and invaluable account of Mexico's blood-drenched drug wars is that she survived long enough to write it. We would all be poorer without Hernandez's determination to account for a civil conflict that has cost at least 60,000 lives. There could be no greater shame for Mexico should such a fearless and dedicated reporter come to any harm. Narcoland, with its explosive descriptions of decades of corruption permeating the upper echelons of government, leaves an extremely bad taste in the reader's mouth about the state of Mexico's perennially corrupt institutions - and begs the question: how much has changed? For Narcoland, Anabel Hernandez spent five years combing police, court and US papers, securing access to informers and sources and pursuing often fruitless requests for official files. The result is a searing indictment of a war on drugs she believes was a sham from the start.The stark truth of a sham 'war'...A product of five years' investigative reporting, Hernandez's meticulously researched explanation of the links between the Sinaloa cartel, the world's biggest criminal organisation, and Mexico's leadership makes for jaw-dropping reading.,In this brave work, the author argues that since the presidency of Gustavo Diaz Ordaz (1964 - 1970), all of Mexico's rulers have maintained close relations with groups that import, export, and sell illegal drugs. Indispensable reading for anyone who wants to understand the origins of the violence ...An extraordinary book for making the necessary journey to our heart of darkness.

Economy, Environment & Culture in Latin America
58,90 € *

This work explores the evolution of national planning in Brazil and Mexico over 90 years through a conceptual model of the relationships among humans, their social, political and economic organization, their technology, their environment and their culture. Whereas the initial import-substitution industrialization in these countries focused too narrowly upon specific sites, later export-led industrialization has attended only to the global market. The former was more attentive to the immediate environment, while the latter is more attentive to world ecology. Neither considered culture. However, the conceptualization of national planning processes must simultaneously recognize dynamics of economy, environment, and culture at community, regional, national, continental and global scales. After long promoting the positivistic search for political order and the dream of economic progress, the national planning processes of Brazil and Mexico now recognize and incorporate parallel attention to environment and culture. Attention to environment offers to the world, including humans, the hope of continued existence. Attention to culture infuses that hope of continued existence with meaning.

Commerce and Contraband on Mexico's West Coast ...
88,95 € *

Mexico's post-independence instability is usually seen as leading to economic stagnation as well as unproductive politics. As this book shows commerce continued and expanded on the West Coast, but because of political difficulties much of the trade was conducted as contraband. The very scale of the business belies the impression that Mexico was, in economic terms, standing still. On the West Coast, the availability of silver, both for export and to pay for imports, led to the organization of an expanding import-export trade that persisted throughout the period here considered, despite unpredictable economic policies and consistent political turbulence. The region became part of the expanding global economy of the first half of the nineteenth century, and, when circumstances permitted, the entrepreneurs who organized the trade made tentative steps toward moving beyond commerce to manufacturing. Times were never easy but neither were they static.

The analysis of expenditures for different household categories within a CGEframework is a helpful instrument for economists and policy makers. This approach allowsresearchers to focus on the possible effects that macroeconomic changes and trade reformsmight have on household categories, especially in developing countries.This dissertation presents a new household expenditure estimation methodology and anapplication of it. The estimation is based on a complete household demand system, which isintegrated into a household module. The complete demand system regarded in this approachis the one proposed by DEATON and MUELLBAUER (1980) the Almost Ideal DemandSystem in its linear version (LA/AIDS). The LA/AIDS contains a set of demand functionsdefining how households in function of prices and household preferences allocatecommodities. The household module computes expenditure changes based on changes onprices from the GTAP model and on elasticities coming from the LA/AIDS for Mexicanhouseholds.The evaluation of household preferences shows that for non-poor households inMexico, the decisions of purchase between food products and non-food products and servicesare independently made. Meanwhile, poor households try to first cover their food needs, andas a result of this, are delaying the acquisition of other goods and services.This investigation then evaluates the effects of three different trade reforms onhouseholds’ expenditures in Mexico. The results show that Mexico’s efforts to reach abilateral trade agreement with main trading partners pay off for households as prices ofconsumed commodities decrease driven by lower values of import commodities. Thus, thefirst scenario simulating 3 different Free Trade Agreements was identified as the mostprofitable trade setting for the poorest Mexican households because the price of staple foodsdecreases considerably. A restricted multilateral agreement considering a partial liberalisation(the second scenario simulating a possible outcome of the Doha Round), was found to be themost prudent and advantageous trade setting for the Mexican households as benefits will bedistributed equally across more household categories. The third scenario evaluates a full tradeliberalisation, and it was found to improve the performance of export sectors worldwide. Thehigh prices brought about in Mexico might been compensated with gains for farm households,while urban households might lose. However, the inclusion of the income side is required tomake conclusive statements on the real effects of a fully liberalised economy in Mexico.

NAFTA's first decade - Accomplishments and fail...

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Region: Middle- and South America, grade: 1,0, Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg, 29 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: On January 1, 1994, Mexico, Canada, and the United States established the largest free trade area under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) after two and a half years of negotiation. This agreement created a free trade area on the North American subcontinent with approximately 431 million inhabitants and a GDP of about $15.3 trillion in 2006. NAFTA represented an important milestone in global trade policy, not just because of the sheer size of the free trade area it has created, but also with regard to the comprehensiveness of the agreement. It covered not just merchandise trade but also issues related to investment, environmental policies, energy generation, and labor markets. NAFTA's primary goal was the creation of a free-trade area with free movement of goods, service and capital, but no common market. In order to prevent the abuse of different external import tariffs, NAFTA implemented strict rules of origin. NAFTA is focused on economic cooperation and does not - in contrast to the European Union - intend a deeper political integration or the transfer of national sovereignty to a supranational organization. The creation of NAFTA is based on the fact that three countries, despite different size, economic structure, and ethnical background pursued the same goal, the establishment of a closer regional economic integration. Differences in economic terms between the member countries can be clarified by the distribution of NAFTA's GDP in 2006. More than 86.2 percent of NAFTA's total GDP was generated by the United States whereas Mexico contributed only 5.5 percent, which reflects the state of Mexico's economic development. Additionally, the Mexican GDP per capita amounted to only 18 respectively 20 percent of the GDP per capita in the United States and Canada.4 This heterogeneity between the three participating countries may be the most significant aspect of this agreement. This paper discusses NAFTA's accomplishments and failures after its first decade from the Mexican perspective as the agreement has been confronted with skepticism from its inception until today. While Mexican officials understood NAFTA as a measure to modernize the country through free trade, critics feared the transformation of the Mexican economy to a huge maquiladora where investors are mainly focused on the exploitation of Mexico's low labor costs.5 Since the beginning of negotiations, Mexico's former President Salinas has raised high expectations on the Mexican side in economic and social terms with his statement: 'The whole point of NAFTA for Mexico is to be able to export goods and not people. That means creating jobs in Mexico.' In order to highlight whether NAFTA resulted in economic as well as social improvements, this paper focuses on a comparison of these two aspects.
