Commercial Opportunities in Mexico CityCommercial Opportunities in Mexico City

by J. Simmons and W. Evans, Centre for the Study of Commercial Activity, Ryerson Polytechnic University, 1994

The visitor to Mexico City is overwhelmed by the diversity of the urban landscape. The city is at once New World, Old World and Third World, with rich and poor, urban and rural, modern and traditional, colonial and indigenous, all scrambled together; above all, the range of lifestyles is extended into degrees of poverty that are unfamiliar for people from the developed world. The result is unpredictable: some vistas are colorful, stimulating, delightful, others appalling and profoundly depressing. Some institutions work marvelously; others, disastrously.
