Trade and Migration: NAFTA and Agriculture


Policy Analyses in International Economics 38

by Philip L. Martin

"Martin's economic analysis is excellent ..."

Orbis

"... an excellent case study of the relationship between economic development and cross-border immigration trends."

Yale Journal of International Law

Description

This study examines the controversial question of whether the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) will increase or decrease Mexican migration to the United States. The author estimates that NAFTA will increase migration by as many as 100,000 persons annually. He argues that NAFTA will prevent even more migration over the longer term by stimulating economic growth and job creation within Mexico. The author proposes a variety of ways in which the federal government should assist state and local governments that will be affected by increased immigration.
