The Case of Mexico I: Neo-Colonialism and Truncated Revolution
By Alvaro J. de Regil
This is the first of three essays about Mexico. The Assault executes a detailed analysis, using Mexico as an emblematic case, of the dire consequences of the imposition of Neoliberalism in the Third World. In this essay, The Assault discusses the roots of Mexico's social injustice and explains the development path followed after Mexico's 1910 civil war until the first economic debacle in the mid-1970s. The Assault starts by stating that, after forty years of relative development, this nation has moved to insert roughly one-fifth of its population in the global economy, whilst the rest are being totally or partially marginalized.
