Immigration and Mexico

Steve Forbes, Editor in Chief of Forbes Magazine, writes about Making Mexico the Latino Tiger (sub reqd). Some things you'll learn - 28% of Mexico's labor force is in the US. It takes 58 days to start a business (5 in the US). The cost of starting a business as a percent of per capita income is 16.7% in Mexico, 0.6% in the US. Rigidity of Employment Index in Mexico is 72; in the US is 3. These are good arguments for regime change in Mexico and why our immigration problem sucks.
