Mexico History

Mexico is a newly industrialized country and the 11th largest economy in the world by GDP by purchasing power parity. The economy is strongly linked to those of its North American Free Trade Agreement partners. Despite being considered an emerging power, the uneven distribution of income and the increase in insecurity are issues of concern.

Elections held in July 2000 marked the first time that an opposition party won the presidency from the Institutional Revolutionary Party which had held it since 1929, culminating the political alternation at the federal level, which had begun at the local level during the 1980s.

After New Spain won independence from Spain, it was decided that the new country would be named after its capital, Mexico City, which was founded in 1524 on top of the ancient Aztec capital of Mxico-Tenochtitlan. The origin of the name of the city comes from the Nahuatl language, where Mextli or Mxihtli, a secret name for the god of war and patron of the Aztecs, Huitzilopochtli, in which case Mxihco means Place where Mxihtli lives"". Another hypothesis is that the word Mxihco derives from the mtztli, xictli, and the suffix -co, in which case it means ""Place at the center of the moon"" or ""Place at the center of the Lake Moon"

in reference to Lake Texcoco. The system of interconnected lakes

of which Texcoco was at the center
