Hello. The world is in constant change. This blog is meant to frame a certain “change” occurring in the United States, Mexico, and, to a lesser extent, the rest of Latin America. I refer to the shrinking share of farm laborers in Mexico and the United States. The CIA world factbook confirms the dwindling share of agricultural workers means that their economic priorities lie elsewhere. The United States has demonstrated a highly efficient system of harvesting that is commensurate with its first-world status, affording to feed its own population while exporting a handsome amount to boot. Mexico, whose rocky and oft arid land complicates matters somewhat, is behind. Still, the fact remains that 13 percent of the Mexican labor force is involved in agriculture; compared to less than 1 for the United States.
