Week 9, Question 1, Group 1: Does NAFTA work?

The relocation of firms like Steris Corp to Mexico has had, as we discussed last week, some significant local effects.

Are we as a country better off from a social welfare perspective? As an alternative inquiry, you may want to pursue the chief arguments against NAFTA (or CAFTA) and assess their merits.
