Abstract : The author examines the development of the current crisis and the prospects for the future. While some substantive reforms have been made, there are serious doubts as to how far President Zedillo will go in challenging the power and perquisites of the PRI elite and the narcotraffickers. Though the economy may pick up in a year or so, and significant advances in democratization may occur, political violence and social turmoil will continue, posing serious problems for the United States, especially in the areas of illegal immigration and drug trafficking.
