NAFTA in Mexico: Bad and Getting Worse

1

Many NAFTA promises never came true after twenty years. The US and Mexican people are working for less money, fewer jobs, manufacturing that’s moved to Asia, and food control by multi-national agricultural corporations. Across North America, small towns, rural economies, and families have been devastated by NAFTA. The resulting immigration issues, increases in drug cartels and crime, and greater poverty in both countries should sound an alarm to governments that NAFTA isn’t working. Will the governments respond? The Facebook picture is of 65,000 people protesting the Trans Pacific Partnership in Mexico City. To my knowledge, the protest was not covered in the US.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
