History of Mexico

For your final paper, you will analyze the main arguments in Alyshia Gálvez’s, Eating NAFTA: Trade, Food Policies, and the Destruction of Mexico. According to the author, how have the policies associated with NAFTA resulted in serious repercussions for Mexico’s crops? For example, what were Mexico’s traditional crops since before the colonial era, and how has NAFTA’s implementation in 1994 impacted the kinds crops now grown, and the manner in which they are cultivated? How have changes to Mexico’s agriculture led to recent differences in diet and eating habits in Mexico? How have dietary shifts made since NAFTA led to an increase in diet-related illnesses in Mexico? And ultimately, according to Gálvez, what is the relationship between the implementation of NAFTA and Mexico’s educational opportunities, income disparities/poverty, Mexico’s economy, and even immigration? In your conclusion, please discuss if Prof. Gálvez effectively made her argument. Your paper should include relevant material from your textbook and primary source reader.
