It was a good idea. I'm Mexican, so I'll speak about my country. The quality of life its a lot better than 14 years ago, and as I see the full picture, creating economical blocks (like Europe), is the way to go. Gobalization can not be stop. And about US, I don't think it affects you that much, in fact, you get a lot of profit from it. Anywhere i turn around here in Mexico City, there's a McDonalds and Starbucks, Walmart is the #1 seller, and I read some time ago that 40% of our corn (in Mexico corn is the most demanded product for food) is grown in U.S.
