 About the Book 

Voltaire once said about the Holy Roman Empire that it was neither holy, Roman, nor an empire. In similar fashion, it can be argued that the Canada-U.S. Free Trade Agreement (FTA) is neither free, about trade, nor a popularly supported agreement.MoreVoltaire once said about the Holy Roman Empire that it was neither holy, Roman, nor an empire. In similar fashion, it can be argued that the Canada-U.S. Free Trade Agreement (FTA) is neither free, about trade, nor a popularly supported agreement. Merrett forces the rhetoric surrounding free trade into a confrontation with the facts: rising unemployment, falling wages, and the dismantling of Canadas social programs.--Florida State University
