NY Times: Revisiting Nafta: The Stakes for Key Industries

April 27, 2017 — 

As the New York Times reports: 

President Trump may not be terminating the North American Free Trade Agreement, known as Nafta, but that doesn’t mean the deal is safe….

“The effects of this trade agreement on agriculture, that’s something you can’t assign a number to,” said Ryan Cardwell, an associate professor in the department of agribusiness and agricultural economics at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg. “However, there is a broad consensus that Nafta did increase integration of agricultural markets in North America.”
