What are the effects of NAFTA/CAFTA on the American economy?
The Economic Policy Institute published a study of the effects of NAFTA on the U.S. worker more than a decade after its 1993 passage. The results are alarming.
Despite its name, the primary purpose of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) was not to facilitate trade among separate sovereign societies. Rather, it was to promote an integrated continental economy and establish the rules to govern it.
Twelve years later, it is clear that the costs to workers outweighed the benefits in all three nations.
The 1 million jobs displaced by NAFTA trade, primarily in manufacturing, would have paid $800 per week or more in 2004. The average job in the rest of the economy paid only $683 per week, 16% to 19% less than trade-related jobs. Growing trade deficits with Mexico and Canada have pushed more than 1 million workers out of higher-wage jobs and into lower-wage positions in non-trade related industries. Thus, the displacement of 1 million jobs from traded to non-traded goods industries reduced wage payments to U.S. workers by $7.6 billion in 2004 alone.
NAFTA alone is responsible for the loss of at least 1,000,000 good paying U.S. jobs, mostly in manufacturing while at the same time wages continue to be driven down.
Other job killing Clinton initiatives, besides NAFTA and the U.S. joining the WTO, include Clinton praising the approval of China into the WTO with the statement "This landmark act will extend our economic prosperity at home while increasing the prospects for more openness in China".
Again, Clinton lied and continued his ruthless manipulation of the American worker (Bush is no different). There was no extension of economic prosperity in the U.S. resulting from America joining the WTO and approving the entry of China into the organization. In an Economic Policy Institute (EPI) analysis, the results of trade with China equated to staggering job losses in America.
Contrary to the predictions of its supporters, China's entry into the World Trade Organization (WTO) has failed to reduce its trade surplus with the United States or increase overall U.S. employment. The rise in the U.S. trade deficit with China between 1997 and 2006 has displaced production that could have supported 2,166,000 U.S. jobs. Most of these jobs (1.8 million) have been lost since China entered the WTO in 2001.Between 2001 and 2006, jobs were displaced in every state and the District of Columbia. Nearly three-quarters of the jobs displaced were in manufacturing industries. Simply put, the promised benefits of trade liberalization with China have been unfulfilled.
Many economists blame the catastrophic trade imbalances between China and the U.S. as no more than China deliberately keeping its currency devalued while imposing slave wage rates. EPI suggests that this equates to a 40% Chinese subsidy on exports.
.
Who ever penned this piece about NAFTA is making a political statement, most of it is ill informed or just plain false. The direct effect of NAFTA on U.S.-Mexico trade is fairly small, and thus the direct impact on the U.S. labor market is also small; trade with Mexico was growing before NAFTA's implementation, and would likely have continued to grow with or without the deal. Overall, the NAFTA deal has expanded U.S. GDP very slightly and has had a similar effect-both positive and small-on the Canadian and Mexican economies. It is a ‘tempest in teapot’ at best!

California's attempts to switch to green energy have inadvertently put the survival of the state’s golden eagles at risk.

Scores of the protected birds have been dying each year after colliding with the blades of about 5,000 wind turbines.

Now the drive for renewable power sources, such as wind and the sun, being promoted by President Obama and state Governor Jerry Brown has raised fears that the number of newborn golden eagles may not be able to keep pace with the number of turbine fatalities..

The death count along the ridgelines of the Bay Area’s Altamount Pass Wind Resource Area has averaged 67 a year for three decades.

The 200ft high turbines, which have been operating since the 1980s, lie in the heart of the grassy canyons that are home to one of the highest densities of nesting golden eagles in the US.

‘It would take 167 pairs of local nesting golden eagles to produce enough young to compensate for their mortality rate related to wind energy production,’ field biologist Doug Bell, manager of East Bay Regional Park District's wildlife programme, told the Los Angeles Times.‘We only have 60 pairs,’ he added.

It is a nationwide problem, it's estimated that thousands of birds, including eagles, falcons, hawks, owls, gulls, waterfowl and songbirds, are killed by wind turbines.
Eastern golden eagles are among the rarest species out there. West of the Mississippi River their population is estimated at 20,000; east of the river, estimates vary from 1,500 to 3,000. For years, researchers have focused on the ‘goldens’ that wing their way through the mountains of Pennsylvania and West Virginia, part of the Northern Appalachian range, and on the emerging wind energy industry that has grown up there in the past decade. There may be more of these birds wintering in northwest Connecticut than anybody has ever realized. While not an endangered or threatened species, golden eagles are protected under the 1940 Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act against harassment or killing. Their particular hunting style puts them at a greater risk around wind turbines

Oregon-based electric utility PacifiCorp paid $1.4 million in fines and restitution for killing 232 eagles in Wyoming over the past two years. The birds were electrocuted by poorly-designed power lines. How many millions have wind farms been fined for the hundreds of thousands of birds and bats they kill each year?

A July 2008 study of the wind farm at Altamont Pass, Calif., estimated that its turbines kill an average of 80 golden eagles per year. The study, funded by the Alameda County Community Development Agency, also estimated that about 10,000 birds—nearly all protected by the migratory bird act—are being whacked every year at Altamont. That's one wind farm. And the bird deaths have been followed since the 90's by biologists.

The point being, if you're "dirty" energy, i.e. on Obama's hit list, you'll be fined and just one more push to limit traditional sources of energy.
If you're a "greenie" and make the right (well, left in this case) donations, you get a free pass.

Yet, it's all about "saving the environment" haha

The first wind farms appeared in California in the early 1980s, as a result of generous tax credits, long before anyone talked about “green energy”. The largest Wind Farms are in China with as much as 10,000 MW per farm and getting bigger.
What’s up with you and wind-farms anyway, you can’t put your head around green energy with limited thinking?

And of course, as usual, frank is pretending he doesn't know what "wake up's" point was and he is trying to focus on and put the blame on the other person's way of thinking.

Type slower everybody so frank can "get it". Wake up's point was that some places get fined heavily for the deaths of the Eagles but the green energy places get a free pass. Get it, frank? No? Otay! You get it but you are so programmed to distort and focus on other meaningless frank babble that you just can't help yourself. Same ole same old frank.

I'm sure that you know that it's illegal to own an eagle feather, even if you find it on the ground. Same with Blue Jays and Cardinals - and a host of other protected species. You can be fined just for picking one up dead on the roadside, or worse spend some time in jail.

But it's ok for the government to kill our National Bird.

Double standard, two-faced hypocrites!!!

PS: Unless it's changed, only Native Americans can use the eagle feather ceremoniously....anyway, last I heard.

I worked in a factory for 20 some odd years and was forced to pay union dues even though they didn't do a damn thing for me. They were great for the slugs that worked there. When machines were down and maintenance workers were fixing them I grabbed a broom and started sweeping up around my area and was reprimanded and brought before the union stewards because I attempted to sweep up the cardboard dust in my area on downtime. The well protected union slugs were in the breakroom because of the downtime. I was accused of taking another union workers job from them because I swept what they COULD HAVE swept if they hadn't of been sitting in the breakroom.
I hate unions and the people who represent themselves as union representatives. The employees overwhelmingly voted (84%) to strike at one time and the union leaders would not allow us to strike. They have the final call. Later emails from union representatives to the company management revealed that the union guys were assuring the company all along that there would be no strike and not to worry. And we we FORCED to pay the union officials to screw us like that.

Looks as though a lot of Americans are realizing that unions aren't what they claim to be. About time!

Progress--killing the birds is bad enough--but the worse part is that Obama gave the wind mills a waiver from the fines for killing the birds because they are part of the GREEN>But every one else gets fined!

Some years ago,got a letter from the State ag.dept.that we had some weeds on the back forty near a creek where we could not mow,but the cattle wandered thru.Turned out they had the police helicopter go over and spotted the weeds.Then the State police called and were ON the property to destroy the "weeds".Turned out to be wild something,but they were threatening by even being there.Sort of like the thing with the birds,it`s who you know and who you call .I sprayed the weeds with weed killer and every one got happy.Never told the EPA I mixed the weed killer with diesel fuel to kill everything.Guess the Statute of limitations would apply as this was about 25 years ago.They just could not understand why we could not mow over the rocks of the creek.Later took the bull dozer in and cleared it all up and put in ponds for water holes for the cattle.The state ag.then came in to tell us how to do it.What a waste.
