n. american free trade agreement

 

 

 

The idea sought after by the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) is that free trade provides states with the ability to generate economic growth by means of destroying barriers to trade. Such an action makes the territory more appealing to foreign investors. Accordingly, foreign investment, as envisioned, was to bring about an increase in employment rates and reduce poverty. To the contrary, even though exports in Mexico grew in tremendous proportions, no significant growth or positive employment changes occurred.
