NAFTA-- A Twenty-Year Assessment with David Shirk -- 20 Years After NAFTA -- Center for US-Mexican Studies & Osher UCSD

4/21/2014; 41 minutes

UC San Diego visiting professor David Shirk evaluates the North American Free Trade Agreement at its 20th anniversary, an important milestone for the U.S., Mexican, and Canadian regional partnership. NAFTA was accompanied by continued economic integration, significant periods of job growth, and dramatic increases in foreign direct investment flows across all three countries. The agreement remains somewhat controversial because of its implications for currency valuations, industrial restructuring, and the environment. This lecture will review NAFTA's pros and cons as all three countries contemplate moving toward a new era of free trade and economic integration through the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement.
