Mexico, the most populous Spanish-speaking country in the world, boasts one of the world's largest economies plus diversified trade and declining poverty. Mexico is the third largest supplier of oil to the United States, and also produces more automobiles than either the U.S.A. or Canada. Yet despite Mexico's continued economic advancement, the nation is beset by drug-related violence, insecurity, and a breakdown in the rule of law. Brookings experts are examining the social, economic and political aspects of North America's second largest country.
