Pol Econ Global Lat Amer: Mex

Political Economy of Globalization in Latin America: The Mexican Case
How does globalization affect developing countries? What general lessons might a single country's response to globalization teach? What economic, political, or social consequences arise from embracing or resisting globalization? We will examine such issues by focusing on Mexico, one of Latin America's most dynamic economies and a leading U.S. trade partner. Themes will include the politics of colonialism, revolution, authoritarianism, and democratization; economic modernization and economic/political crises; economic integration, drug trafficking, and immigration. These themes will be set against the backdrop of historic and contemporary globalization, and Mexico's encounters with "core" states in Europe, North America, and international institutions. 3 hrs. sem.
