This chapter examines the situation of Mexico in the new world order. As the end of the twentieth century approached, the political leadership of Mexico continued to pursue foreign investments, privatization, and free trade despite a lack of evidence that the program was actually benefiting the majority of its citizens. President Ernesto Zedillo Ponce de León continued the policies of his predecessors believing that the only solution for Mexico's economic woes was privatization combined with the recruitment of foreign capital. This chapter evaluates whether the Mexican masses can benefit from the infusion of foreign investments from the U.S.
