Mexicans buying back Texas one property at a time

Quote:
A ``Texas for Sale'' sign and cowgirls in boots and white hats greeted Garza at the Convex center in Monterrey, Mexico, earlier this month. A Monterrey developer and investor, Garza was in search of foreclosed U.S. property to buy.

``Texas is like our home,'' said Garza, 45, who joined hundreds of Mexicans poring over lists of Texas properties at the four-day event. Garza, who owns manufacturing sites and other land in Mexico, said he and five partners may invest as much as $8 million in Texas. ``We believe there can be some opportunities.''

Sounds like good old fashioned land speculation. It doesn't sound like they're trying to add it to Mexico.

Give me a dollar.

Or have 18 kids running around, with a 19th one in the oven.
Or have 9 cars parked outside one residence.

But damn, i don't think they'll be able to keep their yard as clean as the mexicans.

I was under the impression that they are discussing commercial property, like Bimbo buying Mrs Bairds. It's better than having Hutchison Whampoa owning a food supplier for example.

Very good point.

Maybe they'll help out and install some coi ponds for a cheap price too.

Why do you think all conquests must be of the war variety?

America has been losing economic clout for quite some time now. Little by little foreign ownership is creeping in.

Sometimes it is as subtle as mexicans buying up homes in Texas, sometimes as large as Japanese/Arabs/Europeans buying up skyscrapers and corporations.

Well over 1 trillion dollars of foreign owned property in the US and we're financing about 2 billion dollars A DAY with foreign money to keep it all going. 1/2 the debt this country has is held by foreigners.

Like that Church's or Popeye's chicken? Its majority owned by an investment firm that serves Arab investors.

20% of the refineries in the US are foreign owned and foreigners have sizable interests in power generation, chemicals and water treatment.

When the inflow of foreign investment slows down... what do you think happens?

What typically happens when your currency falls against other currencies? Well, the theory is your goods are more attractive overseas and foreign goods are less attractive. According to the trade deficit this didn't happen this time. Oops.

So now we have a weak currency, a weak economy, foreigners buying up shit at fire sale, still a huge trade deficit... hmmm...

Who do you think will be working in the property they buy?
