 “Zibata” a Queretaro planned, gated community designed for 150,000 people.

The Washington Post reports that Mexico has a middle-class and it is growing,  Yes, somewhere between 24% and 50% of the 114 million people of Mexico are considered poor, but if "...the middle class can be defined (as a) household with a new refrigerator, a car and a couple of cellphones, ...even if the combined salaries of the members of the household would make them miserably poor in Washington,..." then they are considered middle-class and growing in Mexico.

Being middle-class may me smaller families, a college education, two earners and some of America's values.  The WP even saw a copy of Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged" on a Mexican coffee table. The middle-class also tends to be socially liberal, but fiscally conservative and they were the deciding factor in the election of Pres. Calderon.
