In 1992, the hottest issue in the Presidential election was the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA. This agreement reorganized American trade policy for a generation. Now, outsourcing of jobs and of production is routine, and investors can sue to break the ability of states and localities to enact laws protecting the environment, workers, or consumers.
Currently, Washington is debating to pass three more NAFTA-style agreements, this time the agreements are with South Korea, Colombia, and Panama. In our series in collaboration with the Huffington Post, we’re looking at what these deals mean.
