The New Face of Conquest: GATT and NAFTA

Program #DAWK001. Recorded in Boulder, CO on January 25, 1993.

GATT, the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade, and NAFTA, the North American Free Trade Agreement, are the broadest and most far-reaching trade pacts of this era. GATT, on a global level, and NAFTA, on a regional one, will structure and determine North/South economic relations in the 21st century. Advocates claim the agreements will generate jobs and prosperity. Critics say transnational corporations will reap the benefits while the environment is further degraded. Kristin Dawkins has closely examined GATT and NAFTA.
