Mexico: A Middle Class Society, Poor No More, Developed Not Yet

Published by The Wilson Center
This book gathers data and statistics that show how Mexican society has changed in fundamental ways, acquiring a strong sense of property and ownership, as well as the conviction that society has the right to preserve what it has earned with much effort. The implications of this change are immeasurable, and among its consequences is the appearance of a society that values stability and demands more accountability from its authorities. The rise of the Mexican middle class is the most relevant development of the last decade in the country. Therefore, the consolidation of this sector is perhaps the most important issue on the agenda for the future.
