Three countries assess NAFTA

International News Conference Call
1:00 PM Eastern, Thursday, September 28, 2006

Twelve years under the rules of the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA, has had a perverse impact on the distribution of income, wealth, and political power across the continent.  A new three-country report shows that NAFTA has not lived up to its promise of better jobs and faster growth for Mexico, Canada, and the United States. Instead it has promoted an integrated continental economy with rules set by and for the benefit of the political and economic elite.

On Thursday, September 28, 2006 at 1:00 PM Eastern, economists from the U.S., Mexico, and Canada will discuss the report, Revisiting NAFTA , which details the trade deal’s effects on the economies, working people and labor markets of all three nations.
