    A page on the Canadian Government’s G-20 Toronto Summit website promises payments to citizens “to mitigate adverse financial consequences” as a result of the meeting of world leaders June 26-27.

    NAFTA Should Not Take the Fall for Mexico’s Failure to Reform

    Participants at a recent conference in Washington blamed Mexico’s failure to achieve above-average economic growth in the past decade on the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).  This criticism is unfair and unwise.  The NAFTA agreement is one of the best examples in recent history of a successful, mainstream, and … More
