The NAFTA agreements, signed in 1992, established a free-trade zone among the three North American countries; Canada, Mexico and the United States. One of its primary goals was to lift tariffs on a majority of goods produced by the three signatory nations.
What has actually happened in the years since agreements have gone into effect? How the national economies been affected? What has been the impact on labor and employment? Have there been changes in immigration patterns because of NAFTA? What changes might be in progress for the coming year?
