This paper analyses the historical performance of the Mexican manufacturing industry based on the strategies that began to be adopted in the 1960s. It examines in particular the relationship between the productive increases driven by the opening of the market and the levels of economic well-being observed among people involved in this sector. The results of a sequential analysis of historical trends and estimates of production functions and distribution mechanisms suggest that the productive success of the manufacturing industry has only served to boost the economic well-being of companies and their owners, but not that of their employees or the wider community.
