Las remesas a México durante el 2016

Aunque en los últimos años la migración mexicana hacia Estados Unidos ha caído notablemente, las remesas no sólo se han mantenido estables, sino que crecieron un 8.8% en 2016. Las razones principales se deben a tres factores claves. Primero, el aumento en el número de mexicanos que envía dinero. Segundo, el uso de sistemas electrónicos para envío de dinero y, tercero, las tasas de cambio.

Untangling the Future of NAFTA

On March 6th, The Dialogue hosted an open discussion on the future of NAFTA and the global impacts of its potential reform or repeal. Along with substantial political uncertainty about the future of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), there is also widespread confusion about the various options and scenarios for reform within the complicated architecture of the multilateral trading system. Many of the possible outcomes would have grave implications—not only for the economies of Mexico, the US, and Canada, but also for other major trading partners.

On Tuesday the voters will have their final say –and the time to govern will begin. Whoever wins, the polarization, rancor and malaise that this election brought to the fore will permeate US politics for years to come.
