Mexico’s strong economic performance during 2011 and 2012 together with the installation of the new administration led by Enrique Peña Nieto has increased hopes that, after two decades of slow growth, the country is finally making the transition to achieve a higher growth path. However, a disappointing 2013 performance—a growth rate of less than 2 percent—has led to renewed concerns about whether Mexico is again living up to its reputation as a “perennial underachiever. A recent study by the McKinsey Global Institute, A tale of two Mexicos: Growth and prosperity in a two-speed economy, points at how a modern, fast-growing, highly productive economy and a traditional, low-productivity one are pulling in opposite directions, reducing GDP growth and progress in living standards.

One of Mexico’s leading business executives, Pablo Gonzalez, and the lead author of the McKinsey study, Jaana Rames, will join Bart van Ark, The Conference Board’s Chief Economist, to discuss the future of the Mexican economy from a scenario perspective.
