As I see it, it's good and bad and inevitable. [For example: I dont see any way to keep 50% of mexico from walking across the border without the US taking some sort of economic hit to help mexico build manufacturing.] Where I agree now with Larry is that most of the "free trade" agreements are for one way free trade. [His point about trade between equals is something I am thinking about.] I'd mainly like to see shrewder negotiators on the US side. It's like the US negotiators believe in the religion of free trade and are willing to accept possible benefits later while the other sides negotiators are looking at every detail as to where their self interest lies now.
in my view, since its inevitable, managing how we get there is what we should be talking about [and that is how I read Larry's post].
