    I'm glad Calderón understands Argentina's Trade Policy.
    That's one . . . Any more?


    “Mexico is that the country enjoys a trade surplus of 600 million US dollars with Argentina.” (article)
    Would these be Mexican companies, or USA companies located in Mexico?

    The Maquiladoras that's being used by US companies, but there is more that supports the so called Mexican economy..and not to forget US banks..
    Matter of fact, Mercopress posted the article here not long time ago, but as usual, you don't get the whole picture.
    Mr. Keiser talks about it..

    So, apparently the drug money is the only cash in the banking system, the rest is all virtual money.
    As the banks bore down on the laundering flow, the Mexican cartels withdrew their real money from the banking system (where did they store these BILLIONS of $?), and lack of real money caused the world banking collapse. QED
    This would certainly have contributed, but to say that there is no real cash in the world's banks is stretching it a bit.

    For information (from Wiki):
    A maquiladora is an operation that involves manufacturing in a country that is not the client's and as such has an 'interesting' duty or tariff treatment.
    A factory imports materials and equipment on a duty-free and tariff-free basis for assembly or manufacturing and then re-exports or éxports-on the assembled or manufactured product..
    A maquiladora also refers to a “twin plant”, or “in-bond” industry.
    The principal examples of this sort of operation occur in Latin America, and currently about 1.3 million Mexicans are employed in maquiladoras.

    The latter sounds like what Grundig and others had going in Ushuaia a few years back.

    If you listened well, you would understand. It seems you don't understand what you're talking about.

    Well, Fido,
    where are the billions of drug money?
    If you tell Interpol, perhaps we can impound the billions,
    transfer them to the IMF and pop them back into circulation.
    : )
