Abstract: "Mexico’s food supply is undergoing a dramatic transformation as 40 percent of the nation’s corn—a staple at dinner tables—is now imported from the U.S. The Mexican government meanwhile is pursuing agricultural policies designed to discourage small farmers in favor of large, industrialized operations. This holds huge repercussions for the environmental and economic balance of North America."
