To all of whom have different jobs, why do you think the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is good or bad foreign policy.

I must interview several adults with different jobs about their views on the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) for my civics class.. but i don't have anyone to interview or even know what it is...even after i explain it... Therefore, to all of whom have different jobs, why do you think the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is good or bad foreign policy? please explain your reasoning...

I think that NAFTA is a good thing because it promotes cooperation among neighbors.  For better or for worse, North America is connected.  We are symbiotic, and we should acknowledge that.  If we were fighting instead, or pushing them out, it would be bad for business.

I think that it is probably good foreign policy, but it is very hard to know.  Economists believe that free trade leads to good things for all countries, though it is hard to tell if they are right.  Americans have become richer, on average, since NAFTA started to be implemented.  Since economists say it is good and I have seen no compelling evidence to the contrary, I tend to believe it is probably good.
