Week 9, Question 1, Group 2: Does NAFTA work?

The relocation of firms like Steris Corp to Mexico has had, as we discussed last week, some significant local effects. Trade liberalization polices that call for reduced tariffs that lead to these outcomes are supposed to benefit the participants as a whole - so, has NAFTA helped? 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.
