About the Authors
  • Existing theories of economic liberalization fail to account for Mexico's experiences. Why has the Mexican government risked alienating its primary constituencies by pursuing trade opening and joining NAFTA? Big Business, the State, and Free Trade argues that Mexico's trade reforms are the product of the formation of political coalitions between business and the state in different international contexts. It covers the NAFTA negotiations in detail, with a special case study on the automotive industry. As Mexico democratizes, business-government coalitions will become increasingly important.

    • A book-length, single-author treatment of Mexican trade liberalization from the 1980s through NAFTA
    • Adopts an analytical approach that links international financial integration with the politics of trade opening
    • Develops a general explanation of trade policy coalition politics and applies it to Mexico, the most important case of liberalization for the USA
