Trade surging as Mexico consumers embrace 'Made in USA'

Monica Castaneda shops at a Costco outside Mexico City.
When the governor of Colorado came to Mexico on a trade mission earlier this year to see the sights, "one of the most amazing" was a Costco.

"It was as big, clean and modern as any in America," recalled John Hickenlooper, a Democrat, who found the aisles filled with shoppers bearing "nothing but positive feelings toward the United States."

Especially toward U.S. stuff.

The Costco was stocked with products stamped "Made in USA," including some of the $755 million in goods that Colorado exports to Mexico each year: marbled slabs of steak from Greeley, cans of pinto beans from Holyoke, and sacks of russet potatoes out of Monte Vista.
