Since the 1990s, the Mexican economy has aligned itself with the worldwide trend of global integration of production processes, supply chain, as well as capital mobility, risks and talents. However, because of the great crisis of 2008-2010, various economies have initiated reflection processes regarding positive and negative effects of globalization, such as access to more competitive markets, on one hand, as well as concentration of wealth or regulation so restrictive that it slows down competitiveness; the above has left as a side effect a general deceleration of the global economy.

Additionally, information and communication technologies (ITC) have modified behavior patterns among more atomized decision makers such as families. The aforementioned has had an impact on the consumption habits of products and services, on the information flows, on the location of the opinion polls, which is transforming various industries of the different sectors of economic activity. Examples of these transformations include disintermediation, virtualization, robotization / automation and the "financialization" of the economy (ILO, 2017). This financialization would manifest itself as the proportion of the economic activity measured as international flows, of financial transactions as positions in derivatives or in investment portfolios.

On the other hand, the decrease in the demographic bonus in developed countries opens the possibility of flexibility in the migration policies of these economies, which in principle will seek to attract the most qualified and competitive talent internationally. However, this possibility also presupposes the challenge of multicultural integration in the fields of work and society as a whole.
