Overshadowed by drug violence, Mexico's emerging economy surprises many.

Forbes Magazine reports that Mexico is "the little darling of emerging market investors" and poised to become Latin American's largest economy, surpassing Brazil.

"Stars appear to be increasingly aligned for an economic outperformance" by Mexico, says a report by Nomura Securities, cited in The New York Times. "A changing of the guard is slowly but surely taking place."


In their report, "Mexico: A Middle Class Society, Poor No More, Developed Not Yet," economists Luis De La Calle and Luis Rubio of the Mexico Institute at the Woodrow Wilson Center for Scholars, discuss the impact of this growth.
