Though it didn’t generate much news, I want to discuss an important summit meeting that was held in Toluca, Mexico a few weeks ago.
The meeting – to figure out how to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement, aka NAFTA – included the Prime Minister of Canada, Stephen Harper; the President of Mexico, Enrique Peña Nieto; and our own Barack Obama.
You see, while NAFTA is credited with producing over $1 trillion in trade each year, it counts trade that would’ve likely taken place anyway. And now that NAFTA is 20 years old, it’s easy to see that it was a job killer. In fact, NAFTA was a stepping stone on the path that sent record numbers of American jobs abroad.
