IGLESIAS, Esther. Journey to Development in Yucatan. Prob. Des [online]. 2014, vol.45, n.177, pp.169-192. ISSN 0301-7036.

This topic should be viewed in the context of a few theoretical considerations on local and territorial development. This work will then look at the conclusions of some recent specialized contributions to the study of instability and disparities in Mexico and apply these to the focus of this paper. Studying Yucatan sheds light on the enormous limits and extreme inequalities of development in Mexico and its winding road to growth. Yucatan reflects how Mexico is lagging in employment and education, as well as the extent to which people are leaving rural areas, leading to greater urban concentration. In addition, it provides evidence of an increase in outsourcing, the decline of the maquiladora industry and the departure of local capital from its weak manufacturing sector. This work concludes with a broad critique of this type of development.

Palabras llave : Mexico; Yucatan; inequalities; socioeconomics; regional studies; foreign direct investment.
