The "decoupling" of the US from the Chinese economy has in fact already begun. The goal that was set by Peter Navarro, adviser to then-President Trump and author of numerous racist and anti-Chinese libels, accelerated with Biden and the ongoing sanctions and trade war.

As a result, various companies in the technology sector, including those from Taiwan, have become involved in nearshoring to establish themselves in Mexico and other countries. In this regard, it should be remembered that nearly a year ago, on the occasion of the Summit of the Americas in Los Angeles, President Amlo of Mexico emphasized that it was necessary to create a "continental free trade zone" (the dream of the neoliberals in Washington and Mexico since the Bush administration) to "compete against other powers". One more example of why reformist and "center-left" or "progressive" governments are so limited in Latin America.
