Just three years ago, the Pentagon warned that Mexico was at risk of becoming a “failed state”. This interesting article from The Economist notes that the US has been undervaluing its neighbour – and new ‘workshop’ (not one mention of Mexico was made during the presidential debates, while China was mentioned 60 times). On the same topic, Supply Chain Brain looks at sourcing in Mexico and asks why Bridgestone Corp thinks it’s the place to be – despite the security risks.

    Enjoyed the article but amused that The Economist scolds Americans to update their outdated thinking about Mexico but then commits to an image of flying sombreros for its own visual to depict a soaring economy. Doctor, heal thyself.
