U.S.–MEXICO FUTURES FORUM On the Table: NAFTA, Wages, and Development


The U.S.-Mexico Futures Forum panel engages in discussion and examination of the effectiveness of NAFTA, inequality and wages.

Harley Shaiken opened the concluding session by framing the discussion of NAFTA within the context of the 2016 U.S. presidential election. NAFTA was “a critical issue” in the election, he noted, and “the decision of the Trump administration to re-open it in the current context has created a lot of controversy.”
