Hogging the Gains from Trade and Agricultural Policies

Timothy A. Wise

Triple Crisis blogger Timothy Wise was interviewed by the Real News Network on why NAFTA has undermined Mexican agriculture and caused many Mexican farmers to migrate North to seek employment. It is based on his policy brief with Betsy Rakocy, “Hogging the Gains from Trade: The Real Winners from U.S. Trade and Agricultural Policies.”

For more on this topic see Wise’s 2010 Woodrow Wilson Center paper, “Agricultural Dumping Under NAFTA: Estimating the Costs of U.S. Agricultural Policies to Mexican Producers” as well as his recent Triple Crisis posts on agricultural dumping in Mexico and agribusiness and food security.
