Mexico 2050: The World´s Fifth Largest Economy
Mexican economist Macario Schettino, and several studies from firms like Goldman Sachs and PriceWaterhouseCoopers have mentioned this before, suggesting that Mexico’s next destination is situated in a place of great importance worldwide.
In this new scenario, it is expected that some economies that are in the top places, such as the cases of England, France, Italy and Spain, to mention a few, will disappear from the list of the most powerful economies. This is due to change in the population pyramids of these countries, as they are having a very significant population decline.
Mexico, according to these projections, will be the world’s fifth largest economy. In the new scenario new faces as Brazil, India, and Indonesia will appear, with economies growing at astonishing rates, due to both the population increases in these countries and economic advances that have been shown in recent years.
If there are so many studies indicating otherwise, why does it seem that Mexico is always at the bottom of the list? Could it be that it is all about perception? As we’ve discussed before, there is a hidden context for Mexico.
This is Mexico’s destiny, even though we sometimes try to diminish Mexico’s role in the world because of immigration, violence, and many other problems that often arise when we talk about our neighbor. Imagine what could be possible for the United States and Mexico if everyone joins in contributing to the success and growth of the country instead of focusing on its problems.
What could be possible for a “North American block” if we play for Mexico knowing that it is destined to be the fifth economy in the world? How would your life and contributions be like if you live Mexico from this place in the world’s economy? Would it make sense to relate with Mexico’s greatness?
