NAFTA is a Bill of Rights for Capital

Interview with Richard Roman.

Dr. Richard Roman, co-author of Continental Crucible: Big Business, Workers and Unions in the Transformation of North America (in Spanish) discusses how the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) deepened and ‘constitutionalized’ neoliberal reforms already underway, how migrant labour actually winds up subsidizing the United States, and concludes with a discussion of how the bi-national nature of the Mexican working class creates the possibility of international solidarity, or “continental integration from below.”

He was interviewed by Colin Mooers and Kurt Hackbarth of MexElects.
