ALONSO CONCHEIRO, Antonio. Mexico's futures: crossroad and pain in the neck. Polis [online]. 2011, vol.7, n.2, pp. 15-40. ISSN 1870-2333.
The essay argues that, up to now, Mexico still lacks to imagine its long term futures; it states that it is urgent to make a collective, systematic and rigorous effort to do so. Anticipating such an effort, the essay outlines in an overall view, a critical perspective of what has happened in the last twenty years-since the birth of POLIS and up to our days-in several spheres of the national life: demography, economics, politics and society. In each case it also sketches possible futures over the next two decades, or issues that would be important to consider in imagining such futures.
