Advantages of NAFTA - Benefits and Positive Effects - US Economy

Feb 2, 2012 - The advantages of NAFTA for Mexico, Canada and the U.S. include an increase in trade which has contributed to economic growth.

The U.S., Canadian, and Mexican economies have all benefited from NAFTA. Not as much as they should have, because—even after 20 years—the three countries still haven’t properly integrated their economies, which makes them competitive in many areas where they should be cooperative.

There have unquestionably been some very positive benefits. From 1993 to 2007, for example, trade among the NAFTA nations more than tripled, from $297 billion to $930 billion, according to (PDF) the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative. In 2010 alone, some 61 percent of the more than $301.5 billion in goods that Mexico imported came from the United States, as did more than 50% of Canada’s imports."

Sounds beneficial to me, why do libs hate economic progress?

I and many who were impacted by NAFTA disagree with your assertion regarding the trade agreement. This is from your link which you just supplied;

"Furthermore, many in Congress have constituents who lost jobs thanks to NAFTA, and are rightly concerned they could lose more. Every trade agreement benefits industries that are highly competitive, by opening new markets. It threatens those with high wages, because foreign manufacturers can underbid them."

http://useconomy.about.com/

The TPP will put NAFTA on steroids - we will lose more work to 3rd world countries trying to compete for the work we retain. Bad move.

Not beneficial at all my friend. The companies claiming exports are way up are in fact having their goods manufactured overseas at facilities that are American owned, but take advantage of low wages / case in point would be the multitude of clothing companies owned by Wal-Mart, and many more even I conduct business with.

The numbers look good, but they don't specify WHERE the products they export are manufactured. That entire article is a ruse.

"Most of President Clinton's support comes from Republicans, some 120 of whom (two-thirds of their total) are expected to vote for the accord. To win, he needs to get an additional 100 out of 258 House Democrats and, since the Gore- Perot debate three days ago, he says he has picked up another 27 votes.
Given the energy Mr Clinton is putting into winning the vote, it would be a serious repudiation by the Democratic Party if he fails. The administration is also asking Congress to rally round the flag by supporting Mr Clinton before he goes to the Seattle trade summit to meet leaders from China, Japan and 13 other Pacific nations."
Now can we get back to the failure Obama and the fact he hasn't created one single job?
"Now can we get back to the failure Obama and the fact he hasn't created one single job?["

Sure we can - why won't the House even let the Jobs Bill come up for a vote?

"Washington (CNN)- House Majority Leader Eric Cantor flatly rejected President Obama's call for the House and Senate to hold a vote on his jobs bill by the end of the month, saying Monday the full bill, called the "American Jobs Act," won't get a vote in the House of Representatives.

Cantor criticized the President for continuing to press for a vote on the entire package, saying at his weekly session with reporters on Capitol Hill, "This all or nothing approach is unreasonable."

Instead Cantor announced the House will take up several measures this month that he believes House Republicans and the White House agree on, including the three pending free trade agreements with Korea, Colombia, and Panama."

Now ask yourself - why are these politicians always quick to support free trade, but not a Jobs Bill?

it began when the welfare state expanded massively. it began when government became so huge we could not compete. It began when big ticket unions became greedy and together with white collar management produced products that were the same or inferior while they cost more money to purchase. It began when people bought products not caring where they were made as it was not worth it to them. Many of those people were progressives who talk loudly but walk timidly as blaming others is their game.

why is NAFTA even being discussed? It had many fathers and is irrelevant to Oblama.

What's relevant is the lack of jobs after 5 years of Oblama and the traitor Harry Reid.

You post your opinion, I post facts, the least you could do is post an article from a credible source. Do you dispute the figures I posted? If you do, show me something to counter them.

International trade is beneficial, we export hundreds of billions every year. Raising tariffs on other nations goods has proved disastrous.

I'll presume there' s provisions the republicans find objectionable and in fact counter productive.

Is your point they're doing it to harm America?

The only way to produce jobs is for the government to get out of the way, for the government to actually help business's and reduce the amount of onerous and unneccesary rules and regulations.

Every year they add more and more, it never stops.

Wipe your chin, SnowJob.

Republicans like to repeat popular misinformation........ Reagan introduced open borders with Mexico in his Presidential Campaign in 1979, once elected he began working on a Treaty with Mexico and Canada was extended an invitation.

The NAFTA Treaty took 12 years of negotiating and was signed by George H.W Bush, Clinton signed into law (((((((NAFTA Legislation))))) that changed existing laws to accommodate the provisions in the NAFTA Treaty, Reagan initiated and George H.W Bush signed with Canada and Mexico.

Reagan's primary focus was dismantling organized labor and changing American pension laws, allowing Corporations to retain funds and used those funds to reinvest back into Corporate operations at tight times. Companies like Enron can be an example of the disaster that policy change brought to American workers..

The Jobs Bill was one of the Record Republican Filibusters in the Senate, failed as in failed closure on debate in the senate, it was filibustered.

Amazingly the 7 Million jobs created under Obama so far as been done with absolutely no contributions from the Republicans who were purposely trying to make sure the country fails and the sluggish recover would linger for their political benefit.

Ok, who's pushing for this TPP?

Sadly the halcyon days of the 40's, 50s and 60's manufacturing sector are gone and unlikely to come back for the foreseeable future.

Or do you have a plan and no one in power will listen to you?

It's not that simple, what s simple is hard work, ingenuity, education and perseverance, something libs don't even want to talk about. It's how I, and likely you, got ahead.

There are no 7 million created jobs, let's deal in reality, not leftist fantasies.

Any jobs that were created were created with no help from Oblama, unless it was new government employees , like those hired to enforce OcommieKare at the point of a gun.

Republicans are the last people who wish to see the country fail. Republicans are for success for all. Demorats are for a constantly growing welfare state.

What libs refuse to see or admit is that America had a once in a lifetime window after WWI and WWII when most of Europe, China, Japan were in ruins and merely rebuilding their countries and couldn't compete with our undamaged industrial capacity and might. Well, the world has caught up, our advantage has disappeared, WE have to change, we have to work smarter and harder, become more ingenius, become lower cost if possible, those who don't will be left behind and suffer economically.
The demorats and Oblamas plan is simply more wealth confiscation and welfare, a recipe for certain failure.

However, Cantor had no alternative or solutions to contribute........ he had no alternate measure to move the economy ahead and saying no just isn't good enough, and serves as evidence his intent was to cause more pain to Americans.
