Free the Free-Trade Agreements

Go Back

All three potential partners, especially South Korea and Colombia, are
regional allies that both deserve and need the diplomatic backing that
free trade with the United States would symbolize. Second, the
agreements are likely to prove a net plus for the U.S. economy when jobs
are in short supply. And, third, if the United States fails to forge
closer trade ties with these countries, competitors in Europe, Asia and
the Americas will gladly take up the slack.
