"Mexico was the ninth biggest economy in the world and the greatest recipient of foreign direct investment (FDI) in Latin America in 2007. Why has FDI failed to transfer technology, develop cleaner production processes, form human capital, and offer high quality employment specifically in the IT industry in such a country? This book provides excellent reflections on these issues as well as on the inadequate public policies behind these frustrating results. A very valuable contribution to the search for a new, successful economic development strategy for Mexico and other developing countries." Claudia Schatan, Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean, Mexico City, and author of Maquiladoras and the Environment in Mexico
