by Gary Clyde Hufbauer
and Jeffrey J. Schott
The revised edition of this best-selling book was updated to assess the three NAFTA side agreements on labor and the environment signed in September 1993. It also addresses the H. Ross Perot critique that NAFTA will cause the loss of millions of US jobs. The book is a concise but comprehensive assessment of the 2000 page NAFTA agreement and explores the potential impact of the final agreement on trade, investment, and employment in all three countries. It covers all of the major sectors involved, as well as labor market adjustment and environmental issues. The book contains both a detailed spreadsheet summarizing the agreement and a "score card" grading the results. This study will be invaluable for those interested in the intense public debate over NAFTA.
