New #1 Trading Partner Key to National Security


Mexico is on the rise.

Just look at the chart below. As you can see, Mexico surpassed China and Canada to become the top US trading partner earlier this year.

US-Mexico trade reached $234 billion in the first four months of the year. This is no fluke. Mexico now has the second-cheapest labor costs in the world, right behind India. (China is number seven.)

Mexico’s cheap labor pool and its proximity to the US are driving the country’s manufacturing boom. This is just one piece of a multi-industry investing megatrend I’m tracking with the Mauldin Economics Macro Team.

Today, we’re unpacking this unstoppable megatrend in a special video edition of Global Macro Update.

In the video, you will hear:

  • Why this megatrend is critical to US national security

  • How the federal government is backing this megatrend with $900 billion-plus

  • Where we see investable opportunities in this megatrend—including three specific companies on the Macro Team’s Watchlist
