Now they tell us

This is from a December 30 article in the Christian Science Monitor assessing NAFTA at the age of 10.
NAFTA was supposed to build a division of labor that produced jobs on both sides of the border, while delivering a prosperity to Mexico that would weaken the factors that have fed Mexican emigration to the US for decades. That was a tall order that no single agreement could make good on, analysts say, especially in the complex environment of expanding globalization.
So remember the next time you hear some supposed expert tell you that unfettered free trade is the bringer of all things good and holy:

They - are - lying.
