Meek Mexico

mexico_021317While Trump’s policies will impact many nations, Mexico will be the most negatively affected. A stronger dollar will make repayment of its dollar-denominated bonds tougher and simultaneously raise inflation.

Moreover, a trade war will reduce exports and immigration curbs will reduce remittances. Mexico will suffer a mild recession in 2017.
