Facts and Myths about CAFTA Factsheet

An excellent new factsheet on the Facts and Myths about CAFTA has been created by Vince McElhinny. The factsheet adresses the many myths touted by politicians when supporting CAFTA–that it will benefit the US economy and US citizens, that it will benefit the people of Central America and their econmies, that it is a good deal for farmers, that it will protect US textile and apparel producers from Asian imports, that environmental protections are extensive, and more. The factsheet, while good for outreach and popular education, should probably be forwarded onto politicians, who like our own Representative Vern Ehlers, believe that NAFTA-style trade agreements are good for the country.
