"With Europe sputtering and China costly, the 'stars are aligning' for Mexico as broad changes in the global economy create new dynamics of migration."
This is really interesting news that I do not think many people in the United States know about, but I hope they do learn about this. Many people in the United States still think of Mexico using the stereotypes surrounding poverty, drug wars, violence, Swine flu, border issues, and so forth. People think that Mexicans want to come to the United States for opportunity when, in reality, there is just as much opportunity in Mexico. I hope this trend continues and that people in the United States look past the stereotypes and understand that Mexico is a land of opportunity and that they have the potential to be a great nation.
Mexico could be on the rise to become one of the world's manufacturing powers. The workforce is already there, now it's up to companies and people to build jobs for the citizens and immigrants moving in. Amazingly, a country which had so much migration away from the country is now moving back, and with they're not doing it alone but with people from around the world. "Build it and they will come". That being said, Mexico not only has appealing labor rates compared to China and other areas of the world, but the proximity to the United States makes opportunity very appealing. Being next to the U.S., a country which imports so much of its supplies, can be a gold mine for Mexico. In the future it is possible for the tables to turn. Where there was once Mexicans crossing the border for work, it could be Americans crossing the border into Mexico for work. An extreme statement, but anything can happen in this day and age.
The wealth of a nation can come from many differnet aspects, jobs land, ecnomy, resoucres, and labor force. In many contries like china and indina they have lots of factorys and factory workers. However what ahppens when the cost of living and transporations go up, should we give workers a pay raise? NO. The answer is to find people who are able to work for cheeper. This lead to the mass influx of mexican factorites and the mass influx of forign workers fleeing to mexico for the jobs and simple life.
It was very interesting to see how even workers form the US were going to mexico in search of jobs becuse ten years ago it was the exact oppisit.

Conflict Kitchen is the only restaurant in the world that serves cuisine solely from countries with which the U.S. is in conflict.
A great way to begin a discussion on language, culture, identity, and politics.
Any Ethnic conflicts here HUGGERS?
Initially I wasn't really sure what I thought about this resturant. My initial reaction was that I hated it and thought it was a bad idea. I to seemed like we were supporting another country by serving their food. However there is a cultural experience involved when we go out to eat. Many people go out to italian resturants to get the experience of italy and etc. However after really thinking about it the US is typically in conflict with another countries government, not the people who live there. By selling the food of countries we are in conflict with almost gives us an idea about what exactly the culture is there. I think it almost educates people in such a way. I think that might be the purpose on the resturant. By eating at this resturant it opens peoples eyes to what people of that particular country are consuming on a regular day basis. That experience can be good or bad, but either way it still opens up peoples eyes to the type of world other countries are living in. I think by eating there you open yourslef up to a new cultural experience, which I belive is exactly the point that the kitchen is trying to serve. Even if it is through food.
Conflict Kitchen serves foods from the countries the United States is in conflict with. They might be doing this to show Americans a little bit of how their culture is b eating their foods.
