  •  You may be right about Mexico (4+ / 0-)

    I've heard the flow of immigration has actually reversed.

    Poorer conditions in the US plus improvements in Mexico

    •  The middle class is growing in Mexico. In the USA, (3+ / 0-)

      it is falling farther behind.

      New cars proliferate in Mexico, tiny, yes, but new.  Older and older cars proliferate in the USA.  The average age of a car is now something over 11 years.

      After the economic collapse, Mexico had one year of declining growth.  Since then (2009, I believe), their economy has been growing over 4% per year.  

      Only in our dreams will the US see growth of 4% per year.

      Mexico has lots of problems, true. But so does the USA.  

      The difference is that most of Mexico expects the government to help.  In the USA, too many want the government to die, which would lead to the collapse of our nation.
