NAFTA and Trade Deals; Don't Axe Them Just Yet

Season 2 | Episode 4

As the Trump administration works through NAFTA renegotiations, we discuss the costs and benefits of a tariff placed on Canadian lumber, the goal of NAFTA renegotiations and why trade deals are becoming so hard to implement in the 21st century. Does it simply reflect increasing levels of protectionism, or is it the nature of 21st century trade deals themselves?
