This study focuses on the strategies of adaptation and survival of eleven poor families from Tijuana City during the economic (national) crisis in the northern region: the boom of assembly plants, the dollarization of the economy, the existence of families whose members live on both sides of the borderline, the high migrant population of Tijuana, and the existence of the junk economy-with junk coming from the US. Also studied is the manner in which the environment of the border affects those strategies. The results of this study are then compared and contrasted with those of a study of poor families from Guadalajara City by Mercedes Gonzalez de la Rocha (1986-1988).
