Jennifer Brunner on Free Trade

 


Flawed trade policies have distorted benefits

Flawed trade policies have distorted the benefits of America's tax, environmental and labor laws, and have perpetuated an artificial dilemma that economic prosperity and a sustainable environment are mutually exclusive.

A strong and concerted movement by our state's leaders in government, manufacturing, business, labor, nonprofit and civic organizations offers an extraordinary opportunity to the Midwest, and especially Ohio, to revitalize economic development while enhancing environmental protection.

NAFTA and CAFTA have resulted in huge trade deficits

Trade agreements such as NAFTA and CAFTA have resulted in huge trade deficits for the US, hurting our middle class workers who have lost jobs to outsourcing while corporations have scoured the world for the cheapest labor in countries with the fewest health & environmental regulations. These agreements have enabled foreign countries to ship what their low-wage workers produce to the US while blocking many US products from entering their countries.
