5 Ways Mexico Is Outperforming The United States

So much of U.S. news coverage of Mexico focuses on the drug war and the mass migration waves of the 1990s that it’s easy to forget our neighbor is doing better than us in several important ways.

1. Higher GDP growth
Mexico’s 3.9 percent gross domestic product growth rate tops that of the United States, which stands at 2.2 percent.

2. Voter turnout
Mexico is one of 58 countries where voter turnout tops that of the United States.

3. Soccer
El Tri has qualified for the World Cup 14 times and taken home nine CONCACAF titles. The United States, by contrast, has qualified for the World Cup 11 times and won five CONCACAF titles.

4. Less unemployment
While the United States struggles to bring its unemployment rate below 7 percent, the unemployment rate stood at 5.29 percent in Mexico, as of September 2013.

5. Happiness
Mexico ranks 16th in the 2013 “World Happiness Report” produced by the Earth Institute at Columbia University, just edging out the United States, which came in 17th.
