The Case Against Free Trade


The Case Against Free Trade

"The Case Against Free Trade", subtitled "GATT, NAFTA, and the Globalization of Corporate Power", is a book edited by Ralph Nader, with chapters written by William Greider, Margaret Atwood, David Philips, and Pat Choate, which claims that corporations are using free trade as a cloak or smokescreen under which they intend to circumvent the democratic process to harm the health and safety of the general public.

An excerpt:

:Operating under the deceptive banner of "free" trade, multinational corporations are working hard to expand their control over the international economy and to undo vital health, safety, and economic protections won by citizen movements across the globe in recent decades.
