Muchos Mexicanos ya estamos hartos de tanta noticia negativa de nuestro gran país, hay una ignorancia brutal y absurda tanto afuera pero también adentro de nuestras fronteras, somos un país con muchas carencias y problemas, pero también somos un país que tiene mucha gente honrada y capaz, somos una tierra de logros y de esfuerzo, somos mucho mas allá que la guerra contra las drogas o la corrupción.

Quick Market Review - Spectacular DTH growth in Mexico

Quick Market Review - Spectacular DTH growth in Mexico | El México Chingón <-> The Kick-Ass Mexico | Scoop.it

The second quarter of the year saw remarkable growth in Mexico’s DTH pay-TV take-up. DTH recorded a 48.2 per cent growth compared with the same period in 2010. Mexico’s Federal Telecommunications Commission (Cofetel) issued the numbers, and while cable subscribers still – just – represent the majority of users at some 5.5 million subs, DTH now enjoys just over 5 million subs and is growing at a much faster rate. Mexico has a total of 10.77 million pay-TV subs.


Cable subs grew 4.8 per cent year-on-year, while the MMDS sector continues to fall dramatically. MMDS homes fell 29.3 per cent in the year, to a total of just 268,000.


Sky Mexico (owned by Televisa and DirecTV) has 3.58 million subs. Echostar’s Dish has about 1.5 million.

Scientists develop cheaper solar panels in Mexico

Scientists develop cheaper solar panels in Mexico | El México Chingón <-> The Kick-Ass Mexico | Scoop.it

Mexico has the third greatest solar energy potential in the world, and it’s Northern deserts provide near perfect conditions for producing solar electricity. Now the country’s public and private sector are looking to invest in the power of the sun.
 
The Sonora desert. Endless and arid. Here, life struggles to survive under the harsh rays of the sun.
 
But this same desert could be the answer to Mexico’s energy future. It’s one of the few places in the world with the perfect conditions to generate solar electricity.
 
Rafael Cabanillas and his team of scientists are here to develop cheaper and more efficient solar panels.
 
Rafael Cabanillas Lopez, Coordinator Solar Investigation Project, said, “We’ve got to make this technology more accessible and make it easier for solar power to compete economically with other energy sources.”
 
The team hopes that mass production of these cheaper panels will make Mexico’s developing solar industry more attractive to the public and private sector.
 

If solar panels were placed on just one percent of Mexico’s land, scientists say the electricity generated could power the whole country.
 
With production from Mexico’s huge oil fields declining, The government is increasingly looking at alternative energy supplies. Ex-President Felipe Calderon recently inaugurated a 4,000-panel solar power plant in Baja California.
 
The private sector is also slowly turning on to solar power. Forty percent of this factory’s electricity is now being supplied by the new solar panels on their roof.

What we can learn from Mexico

What we can learn from Mexico | El México Chingón <-> The Kick-Ass Mexico | Scoop.it

Kendra King's curator insight, February 2, 2015 8:37 PM

The title of this article was what enticed me as I was hoping to find an actual answer. However, based on this article alone, I don’t actually think there is much the United States can learn from Mexico about politics or economics.

 

This author failed to mention that a difference in political systems could also attribute to the new Mexican leader’s ability to obtain “endorsements from across the spectrum.”  Mexico recently had an election. The new President this article is praising is part of a party that controlled the land for 70+ years until Nieto's predecessor. His predecessor messed up with the cartels so badly that Nieto was elected back into office. Given the amount of support Nieto had going into office, it doesn't seem so challenging to negotiate with opposing parties. Plus, I doubt the opposing parts are as unreasonable as some of the United States members of congress, like the Tea Party.   

 

I also see little to glean from the manufacturing route that Mexico is on at the moment. I will admit that the projected GDP growth of 4% mentioned in the article is impressive. However, thinking that the key to economic growth in the United States is through a similar “manufacturing boom” is just out of touch with the times. As stated in class our wages can’t keep up with the cheaper wages of developing countries (a point the author eluded to in the section discussing “the three main factors at play,” factor number three). Thus, doing what Mexico is doing doesn’t fit the American economy. What the United States might try doing is finding a manufacturing niche that no one has a market on in order to obtain more jobs. Maybe something higher end or medically related would be of benefit to the United States. Even these jobs would end up comprising a small part of the United States economy because the United States is more of a white collar economy. As such, more should be done to protect that sector of our economy from things like outsourcing given its relevance to our modern economy.

 

 Overall, I think the media’s quick comparisons of other countries falls under the bad category of globalization. A fair amount of people would just use this article to say things like, if Mexico’s leader can do X Y & Z then so should Obama. Yet, many of those people wouldn’t actually think about all the differences or reasons why Obama can’t compromise or revert the economy backwards. Am I saying Obama shouldn’t try more or that I am happy with the lack of compromise by all, no. However, I think it is dangerous for journalist to gloss over the situation since many people will take them as a credible source to cite. Mind you not all journalism is bad though. The Scoop.It article I read this week regarding Walmart is a great example of how investigative journalism can have positive consequences. The major difference being one actually did their homework that cited concrete specifics, while the other made a flimsy analogy.  

Mark Hathaway's curator insight, September 22, 2015 7:44 AM

While our government is perpetually mired in gridlock, the Mexican government is making lasting reforms to their nation. News attention on Mexico is almost always negative. While the violence and the drug trade are serious issues,  not enough attention is being devoted to the rapid growth of the Mexican economy. Politicians in Mexico are coming together to create an environment for positive economic growth. The article describes three factors that are leading to the growth of the Mexican economy. The first factor is Mexico's geographic location. Being located right next door to the United States is an enormous advantage for Mexico. Industrial goods are easily and cheaply being transported across the border. The second factor is the ever controversial NAFTA. The agreement ratified during the Clinton Administration allows for Mexican goods to be sold at lower rates than their Asian counterparts. The final factor is wages. The cheap labor environment has made the nation a manufacturing hub. So what can the United States learn from Mexico? Many of their economic advantages are not applicable to our country. However, we can look to Mexico for an example of functioning government. It well past time that our political parties come together and actually try to govern our nation.

Kevin Nguyen's curator insight, October 7, 2015 1:47 PM

Wow, what an interesting article about the direction Mexico is taking off on. Their GDP is increasing and the worker's wages are surprising better than Chinese workers. Both are huge exports of good and as a younger country than China, Mexico is on it's way to manufacture and economic boom. As neighbor country to Mexico, I am curious to see the actions U.S will take to learn and mirror Mexico's growth.

Growth in Argentina, Mexico Drives Ecommerce in Latin America | El México Chingón <-> The Kick-Ass Mexico | Scoop.it

Brazil still makes up majority of market  

B2C ecommerce in Latin America is still in its infancy, with sales reaching only $36.82 billion this year. However, online shopping is showing signs of accelerating growth. Regional retailers such as Americanas, Submarino and Shoptime have been aggressive in expanding their online presence to attract new online buyers.

More than half of Latin America’s ecommerce sales come from online buyers in Brazil, Latin America’s largest economy. Brazil has a large internet population and an increasingly accessible broadband infrastructure. The country has also seen an increase in mobile internet users in recent years, which has helped propel the uptick in the country’s ecommerce sales. Consumers in Brazil are experiencing an increase in disposable income, and show a higher incidence of credit card usage compared to other countries in Latin America. Purchase deliveries to lower- and middle-class consumers outside of Brazil’s major cities present a challenge, though solutions are slowly being put in place.
