Ambassador James Jones discusses the successes of NAFTA despite the fear of international trade and foreign investment that has gripped America during the recent economic downturn.
Amb. James R. Jones
Amb. Jim Jones was inaugurated as Chairman of World Affairs Councils of America in February 2003. CEO of ManattJones Global Strategies, he has served as US Ambassador to Mexico and currently serves as Chairman of the US-Mexico Business Council, Chairman of the International Business Council of Greater Washington, and Chairman of the Meridian Internation Center.
Previously he served as Chairman of the American Stock Exchange, Chief of Staff to President Johnson, and a Congressman representing Oklahoma. He holds a law degree from Georgetown.
I think it is outright disingenuous to equate "fear of globalization" with "anti trade" sentiments. The Globalization Different movement is anti "free trade" and instead supports "fair trade" - not "no trade".
