NAFTA HAS BEEN A SUCCESS

From the Office of the United States Trade Representative, some NAFTA Fact Sheets:

1. NAFTA - Myth vs. Facts

2. NAFTA: An Annual Tax Cut and Income Gain for American Families

3. NAFTA Benefits

4. NAFTA - A Success for Trade

5. NAFTA Analysis

Bottom Line: By almost all measures, NAFTA has been a success: a) trade among NAFTA nations has tripled and has especially helped U.S. farm exports, b) NAFTA has NOT cost the U.S. jobs, has NOT supressed wages in the U.S. or Mexico and has NOT hurt the U.S. manufacturing base, and c) NAFTA has led to environmental improvements in Mexico.

By farms, of course, he means agribusiness.

Let's be honest here. Nafta has benefitted big corporations at the expense of the little guy.

Always interesting to me that one of the groups that always push for labor in the United States to compete with 50 cent an hour labor in other nations are tenured university professors. The University Professors who can not be fired and have salaries subsidized by taxpayers. So the people who do not and can not compete in any way in a "free market" are the ones who tell others it is good for them to compete in the free market.

"Always interesting to me that one of the groups that always push for labor in the United States to compete with 50 cent an hour labor in other nations are tenured university professors"...

What's really interesting about the clueless whiners is that when the facts don't fit their delusional grip on reality attack the messenger instead of what the messenger is saying...

Instead attacking the potential credibility of the postings by the US Trade Representative with credible facts denoting a contrary result we just get more whining...

How about this bit irrational ranting?

"Nafta has benefitted big corporations at the expense of the little guy"...

Hmmm, who hires people in this country besides an ever increasing socialism driven government?

Why its big corporations and SMALL BUSINESS!!!

Imagine that!
