Economic and Demographic Changes Resulting From Trade Policy and Globalization Reform in Mexico and Mexico City From 1960-2002
Through out its history, Mexico has undergone many reform changes that have effected the organization and function of the country's major cities. This paper focuses on Mexico City (Zona Metropolitana de Ia Ciudad de Mexico) the details of the economic, social, and demographic changes as a result of trade policy and globalization reform. This paper proposes that the economic policies enacted from 1960 to 2000 created economic, social, and demographic changes within Mexico and Mexico City. The development of this argument requires an analysis of the economy that Mexico developed after the Mexican Revolution and the actions that ultimately led to this type of economy. This analysis is followed by a report on the economic policies implemented in Mexico between 1960 and 1980, and the economic effects on Mexico as a whole and Mexico City specifically. An analysis of the economic theory of the policies implemented during this period is addressed followed by an analysis of the economic policies enacted during the 1980s and their effects on the country and Mexico City. Finally, an analysis of the demographic and social effects of the economic policies implemented from 1960 to 2000 and their relationship to globalization is addressed.
