Now we have two reasons to be skeptical about Mexico's soda tax effectiveness: very little incentive to substitute to other drinks and not much pass through to consumers. Based on that we can expect the Mexican tax to be a bust both on the consumer's pocketbook and health.

The Hard Truths for Canada About the Trans-Pacific Partnership

Carlo Dade | Posted 10.05.2015 | Canada Business

The bottom line with the Trans-Pacific Partnership for Canada is that it really doesn't have a choice about whether or not to join. The Americans and Mexicans are joining and they're taking the North American market i.e. Canada's market, the source of its prosperity, with them -- whether or not Canada agrees.

Canada Needs to Increase Its Focus on North America

That the U.S. is changing is not news; it may be the definition of pabulum. But what is surprising is how out of touch or uninformed most of Canada seems to be with the drastically changing U.S. and also Mexico, in other words with North America.

Canada Needs to Get Cozy With Mexico

Making the case to deepen ties with Mexico to Canadians on the basis of a thoughtful review of the arguments and the evidence of twenty years of NAFTA experience is a valuable contribution to the Canadian debate, and very much in the tradition of sober second thought on issues of the day.

Trudeau Gets it Right on North America

Carlo Dade | Posted 06.23.2015 | Canada Politics
Carlo Dade

Justin Trudeau's speech on the importance of North America on Monday echoed most of the current wisdom on Canada's standing in North America -- we're in trouble and the issue needs some serious attention. The idea for a cabinet level committee on the U.S. relationship proposed by Trudeau is good, but in reality it would have to be a committee on North America, which means including Mexico. And Trudeau seemed half way there in his speech.

Just as soda sales are declining in the U.S. and Canada, similar changes are taking place in Mexico. Increasing the price of any product leads to lower demand. However, that's not the only factor involved in declining sales.

What Oil Prices Are Doing to Mexico's Economy?

In contrast to the snow-bound North, the weather for my brief trip to Mexico last week was close to ideal. It was in stark contrast to the economic weather in emerging markets these days, which is more like what the US Northeast is currently coping with. Is Mexico's economy more in keeping with its sunny skies, or is the situation as gloomy as in other emerging markets?

Mexico's human rights crisis is staring Canada in the face. According to Amnesty International, there are six times more reported cases of torture and ill-treatment than a decade ago.

This summer Mexico put in place a ban of food advertising to children. The target is junk. Restricting advertising to children is good policy as one part of efforts to have our kids eat nutritiously right from the start. However, in this increasingly interconnected world it is harder and harder for any one society to effectively constrain such promotions.
