Chad Broughton, Senior lecturer for Public Policy Studies at the University of Chicago, examines the global effects of industrial manufacturing; specifically the U.S. – Mexico relationship. In today’s shifting global economy countries must often make rapid transitions to meet the increased demands of globalization. As thousands of jobs have migrated from the United States to Mexico, Broughton argues that what truly matters in debating the consequences of the shift is not just politics or policy implications, but also who is affected and where these changes take place.
