The U.S. has a huge trade imbalance with most trading nations. The imbalance is not in agriculture, although many food products — both raw and processed — enter the U.S. at prices below those for comparable U.S.-grown foodstuffs.

To a large degree the imbalance is in manufactured goods. One reason is that many nations have lower costs of production — based upon a lower standard of living, cheap labor, inexpensive raw materials, protective government policy, etc. Multinationals who have moved their plants to foreign locations enjoy the best of both worlds — inexpensive manufacturing costs and unlimited access to the world’s biggest consumer market, the USA.

Our laissez-faire trade stance, when coupled with many nations’ protective trade stances and the inherent disparity of living standards around the world, is proving to be a recipe for ever-increasing trade deficits. Exacerbating the situation, GATT and NAFTA are proving difficult to implement when other nations improvise phony trade issues and drag their feet at every opportunity. Bottomline, the U.S. is having problems with free trade. More

President Bush Participates in Joint Press Availability with President Calderon of Mexico and Prime Minister Harper of Canada
Gallier Hall
New Orleans, Louisiana

 

“We talked about trade. Mexico, Canada and the United States made a bold decision in the early 1990s. Our countries decided to reduce our trade barriers through the North American Free Trade Agreement. That was a visionary move by previous leaders, a move that has benefitted all three of our countries — a lot. [Not the USA!] Trade has tripled. [ IN WHICH Direction!?]

 Our economies have grown by more than 50 percent. “ (WHERE?? NOT in the U.S.A.!)

 

“Now is not the time to renegotiate NAFTA or walk away from NAFTA. Now is the time to make it work better for all our people, and now is the time to reduce trade barriers worldwide.”

 

– President’e Bush

Joint Statement by President Bush, President Calderon, Prime Minister Harper  April 22, 2008

“The SPP complements the success of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which has helped to triple trade since 1993 among our three countries to a projected $1 trillion in 2008. [Our trade DEFICIT proves that,eh?] 

NAFTA has offered our consumers a greater variety of better and less expensive goods and services, [Where?] 

encouraged our businesses to increase investment throughout North America, [NOT in the USA!] 

and helped to create millions of new jobs [WITH the exception of the USA!] in  all three countries.

NAFTA is key to maintaining North America‘s [GLOBALISTS] competitive edge in an increasingly complex, fast-paced and connected global marketplace.
