This book is a collection of essays by respected academics from Canada, Mexico, and the U.S. They cut through the complexities of NAFTA and provide the reader with a clear view of the main issues. The book asks whether NAFTA is a free trade agreement or just an agreement on how to manage a limited amount of trade. How ill Canada, Mexico, and the U.S. benefit? How will disputes get settled between these countries? The book also takes on the difficult question of what effect free trade in ideas, skills, and capital will have on North-American culture.
