Francisco Bulnes, an engineer and politician, wrote in 1899 that a tropical climate, alcohol, and a poor diet kept the Indian at a subhuman level. He added that the Indian was degenerating further and that extinction was inevitable. 4 The Indian's capacity as a worker in the industrialization process was considered limited, and education would take time. Mexico needed to modernize, and the fastest way to do so would be the importation of foreigners to hasten Mexico's industrialization. 5 The first efforts to attract foreigners began in 1877.
