When China took in tons of foreign manufacturers. they built the biggest middle class in the world.

Mexico's middle class is nearly 50% of the population. China's is roughly 10%.

http://www.investopedia.com/articles/mar...-class.asp

China has the "biggest" middle class because they're the most populated country in the world and their "middle class" is defined as only about $10,000 to $30,000 a year.

Meanwhile over 300 million Chinese -- half of their entire working population -- make less than $10 per day.

"But the middle class that dominates its consumer market still only accounts for a tiny fraction of that number: less than 2 percent of workers earn enough to pay income tax, according to Goldman Sachs."

To be clear, I'm NOT denying that Mexico is dysfunctional. But China is hardly a well-oiled machine itself.
