Es elevada la dependencia entre la industria maquiladora de exportación de México y el desempeño de la economía de Estados Unidos; sin embargo, son relativamente escasas las investigaciones que dan cuenta del comportamiento de otras industrias y su relación con el mercado del país septentrional. Los autores realizan un análisis comparativo entre los mercados laborales de las industrias manufactureras de ambos países. The study is centered on the synchronization between the economies of Mexico and the United States with special reference to the manufacturing sector. The authors examine the dependency between the assembly plant industry for export in Mexico and the performance of the economy of the United States. The authors also make a comparative analysis between the labor markets of the manufacturing industries in both countries.
