I work for a Mexican company and spend time there. One of the biggest problems is rampant corruption, at all levels of society and government. Money that should be paid in traffic fines, etc. ends up in the pocket of the cop. Try to get an appointment at a governement office and you need money to get your place in line. It starts at the most menial level in government and goes all the way to the top. Illegals working in the US send money back to relaties in Mexico, creating a much-needed influx of dollars into the economy. Cultural problems create lax attitudes towards US business relations (late deliveries, etc) and business goes to China, S. Korea, etc. There is a middle class, but it is not very big. There is a huge lower class and lots of employment opportunities, but wages are low. Corruption is killing the country but the government will do nothing, because all the officials are millionaires at the expense of the people.
