It took me longer than usual to get through this medium sized book about 300 pages of text not including copious notes and index not because it isn t interesting it is but because it s necessarily depressing Sociologist Chad Broughton interviewed dozens of workers xecutives union officials and family members of th The author does an amazing job of covering the human dimensions behind global integration And so illustrative and Obsession engaging I m going to refer this book to my manyconomist friends who often undermine the value of ualitative researchI do find that author takes the anti corporation rhetoric a little too far at times I m also skeptical of the uivalency the author draws between Mexico post NAFTA and the Porfiriato I think that one can make a strong argument that although there is still a lot of work to be done in protecting the rights of low income workers struggling populations in Mexico are better off today than they were under the PorfiriatoAt least today there are strong social programs like Oportunidades that are trying to actively combat poverty And to some xtent workers have cheaper and greater options as consumers today than they did when they were forced to Buy From The Tienda from the Tienda Raya under Porfirio I agree with the book that the free trade benefits veryone argument is BS but I do uestion the validity of the comparison specially given how circumstantial history isSome of the characters like Governor Montemayor who I had never heard of before give me hope that there is room for a third way under strong leadership in Mexico I recently saw Miguel Angel Mancera the mayor of Mexico City speak at a conference I can t make a definitive statement about him but I do think he s someone with vision and strong leadership who can hopefully pave a new road for Mexico in the future Overall great read Although we all know the outlines of globalism and its ffects on communities around the world it can be fascinating to see how the details played out in particular manufacturing places Read this book not just for the obvious angle of white populist resentment or the widening of the income gap worldwide but for observations on the nvironment on the fraying of communities on shifting gender relationships and power and other phenomena we all live with Broughton does a good job mploying The Typical Journalistic Mix Of typical journalistic mix of statistics with intensive story telling about individual Midwesterners and Mexicans As he xplains in his notes on method he is interested in the twists and turns of individual stories than in big ideasThe impression left by Broughton is positive that most people despite being reduced to degraded and dangerous working and living conditions in both countries have found ways to njoy life But I do think that Broughton had some inkling when he finished this book in 2015 of the cataclysmic political vents that have occurred in the US Mexico and lsewhere since thenThe narrative and analysis claim that the world we inhabit did not just merge inevitably from technological or demographic trends but was a world chosen by people By their investments by interventions such as strike breaking and by manipulating the political system a number of individuals made decisions that changed the course of history Facile ideologies shareholder value affluence through trade dazzled adherents into adopting policies with negative repercussions on many people Chad Broughton provides an interesting look at the general decline of American manufacturing in the rust belt and the development of the Mauilas industrial zone in Mexico and the devastation that is happening to both the first that is happening to both The first one has to say about this book is that it is very depressing but factual showing what has happene.

Exhaustively researched It was depressing in parts and it doesn t really draw conclusions but it helped me better understand why Galesburg is still not over the loss of Maytag This isn t a book I would normally have read But It S About The Town I it s about the town I in and I will be leading discussion of it as a companion book to our Big Read selection of Sun Stone And Shadows 20 Great Mexican Short Stories I Hadn T Shadows 20 Great Mexican Short Stories I hadn t that Whirlpool closed the Mexican Maytag plant only a few years after the move It s impossible to resent the Mexicans that nded up with Galesburg s jobs Several times Broughton uoted a phrase popular in Mexico that I m still thinking about Pobre Mexico tan lejos de Dios y tan cerca de los Estados Unidos Poor Mexico so far from God and so close to the United States Tells the personal stories of the some of the laborers caught up in the currents of globalization in North America The narrative skips back and forth between a mid western city where an appliance factory is closing down and a Mexican border city where a new appliance factory is openingThe overarching feeling I was left with was of the workers in both places being swept along by forces beyond their control with very little access to the government leaders or the corporate bigwigs who are deciding the circumstances of their conomic lives Also that both cities are undergoing massive displacements due to NAFTA that have ripped apart their social fabrics and traditional social bonds in ways that will be very hard to repair or replace A look at the area and factory workers in IL where the Maytag factory once thrived before shutting down their plant and moving production to Mexico The book jumps around a lot in the chapters that cover what seem to be random areas in Mexico besides where the factory moved to otherwise it covers the lives of 5 6 people during the closing of the plant and how some of them reinvent themselves afterwardsIt is kind of sad to see how a company based on high uality products and family values switched CEO s and suddenly only cared about cost cutting and profit margins shedding their former views but hey at least the shareholders made lots of This is what led to the plants closure since they could pay workers in Mexico 1 2 a day compared to 15 20 an hour in IL These Mexicans are working 50 60 hours a week just to be able to barely afford cheap food for their families but can t seem to be paid a few dollars xtra a day to help make Just Cause ends meet They are also working all day long with carcinogens sans safety gear which is only brought out under special occasions when the plant is under inspection Maytag stockventually plummeted due to poor uality which makes me wonder if they would ve survived if they focused on making high uality products the ntire timeI did find one line in the book pretty funny since it suggested that when new fridges were coming out that Ameri Chad Broughton s story is a modern day tale of two cities It was the best of times it was the worst of times but mostly the worst of times For half of the book he follows the fortunes or not of a group of American workers at a plant that makes Maytag refrigerators in Galesburg Illinois In the other half he follows a group of workers who take jobs with the plant after the company moves it to Reynosa Mexico For both sets of workers his conclusion is the same They have been bearing the burdens of the conomic upheavals of the past three decades so that we can buy and then fill our refrigeratorsthe can buy and then fill our refrigeratorsThe has done a great job of interviewing his subjects and recreating their lives for us It was ually heartbreaking to read of the lives of the American and the Mexican workers In Galesburg factory work gives people a solid middle class life for many. Ican dream the conomy is a shadow of what it once was Reynosa in contrast has become one of the xploding post NAFTA second tier cities of the developing world thanks to the influx of foreign owned xport oriented mauiladoras an industrial promised land throbbing with the nergy of commerce legal and illegalAnd yet ven these distinctions Broughton shows cannot be finely drawn families in Reynosa also struggle to get by and the city is beset by violence and a ruthless drug war Those left behind in the post Industrial decline of Galesburg meanwhile do not see themselves as helpless victims they have gone back to school pursued new careers and learned to adapt and ven thrive In an ra of growing ineuality and a downsized middle class Boom Bust Exodus gives us the voices of those who have borne the heaviest burdens of the conomic upheavals of the past three decades A deeply personal work grounded in solid scholarship this important immersive and affecting book brings home the price and the cost of globalizatio. ,
