Puma Growth in the 21st Century (Percent Change) The Pacific Pumas have enjoyed consistent growth despite difficult global conditions. The downturn in 2009 reflects the global financial crisis, for which Latin America bore little responsibility. 2010 growth figures suggest a swift rebound. In the face of unfavorable global headwinds, 2014 growth expectations are lower than one might hope, but they are still positive.

The Mexican reform process reflects a concerted (and belated) effort to create the institutional foundation required to support the weighty potential of the Mexican economy. The press might refer to the lengthy dialogues between parties as “horse trading”, but for Mexico—a one-horse country for much of the last century—it is evidence of a burgeoning democracy.
