Abstract: A review is conducted of economic relations between Mexico and the United States in the aftermath of the 11 September 2001 terrorist attacks. Topics covered include cross-border commuting patterns, merchandise trade flows, immigration, and structural adjustment efforts in Mexico. Potential outcomes associated with a bi-lateral, temporary guest worker program proposal for the United States are also examined.
