Gary Hoover on Why Mexico Will Change


At the March 2011 SXSW Interactive Conference in Austin, I gave a talk about the future of Mexico and why it is important to the USA. I talked first about some general ideas on entrepreneurship and technology, second about the future of Mexico from a political and economic viewpoint, and third about why I love Mexico, its people, its cities, its culture, etc. My microphone died just before the third section, so this video just covers entrepreneurship, technology, and why I am optimistic about the future of Mexico, and why its so important to all of us in the USA. I also give some stats on Latin America in general. Skip about 20 minutes into the talk to hear my comments on Mexico and Latin America.

The bottom line is that if you look at history, every country goes through a rebirthing cycle. Mexico's drug cartels will go away in the next 10-15 years because they are unsustainable as a business. Compare how Columbia, Brazil, Chile and Peru have grown out of their down cycle and now have rapid economic growth.
