Speaking of Mexico, the political climate there really worries me. I grew up along the Mexican border, so this hits a little close home. Unfortunately, the corruption in Mexico, from the top on down to the very bottom has always been quite rampant. As an example, a close friend of mine was in charge of opening stores in D.F. for a major US retailer. The corruption was so bad, that they eventually had to pull out. All of this is, of course, a bit anecdotal and may not pertain to investing in Mexico. How much of a concern should this be to investors?
