That is true but it is changing under president Felipe Calderon.

Mexico has very little debt both public and private. Half the population is under 26 years old. 95% have free health care. Calderon has trimmed much fat from the government. The are building roads all over Mexico like crazy. The middle class has grown by a huge margin. NAFTA has been good for Mexico. In general Mexico's future is bright while as an American I am concerned about the US's future, especially short term.
