Are policy makers and implementer, slower than the economic down fall? If it is already predicted by scientists and researchers that in 2015 AD or 2022 AD, there will be economic down fall, then why the policy makers and implementer do not work over time to make the economies move smoothly? Don't you feel there is something fishy? Hope you'll touch this point in this discussion.

Many economists are in agreement that an export-led model of growth, though initially a great stimulus to developing economies, is unsustainable in the long run. Given this fact, is it time to call for a reduction in export processing zones in countries such as Mexico where there has been little development of backward linkages, a lack of technological spillover, and virtually no increase in Mexico's share of value-added? What international support would Mexico need to make a successful transition away from EPZs?
