Globalization 2.0 and Mexico’s Options  

Interview with Evodio Kaltenecker, Professor at the Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education  

By: Guillermo Máynez Gil

Information is the lifeblood that feeds the economy of the 21st century. The increasing generation, processing and exchange of data on a global scale is one of the characteristic features of what Evodio Kaltenecker calls globalization 2.0. In an interview with Comercio Exterior, he delves into this concept and its implications in the dynamics of companies. He also gives a diagnosis of international events, the dispute for world leadership, and the growing regionalization of world production and trade. The resilience of society is the basis of his optimism about the future of the world economy, although he highlights one particular concern, that easy solutions to complex problems prevail.
