The President Cannot Constitutionally Withdraw from NAFTA

President Trump is looking to leverage his new trade deal, the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), by threatening to withdraw unilaterally from the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). He says this will give Congress the choice between accepting the USMCA, or returning to the pre-NAFTA framework which, he said, worked very well.

The USMCA is a Bad Trade Deal, But It's Not All Bad

As the newly-negotiated trade agreement between the United States, Mexico, and Canada (USMCA) came to light, pundits and politicians rushed to process what the re-negotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) meant for global trade.

Steep Tariffs to Come in December

This Christmas, American exporters could be getting something a lot worse than coal in their stockings: a series of steep new tariffs on goods sold in Canada and Mexico. Following a ruling by the World Trade Organization (WTO) that the United States' "country of origin labeling" (COOL) laws unfairly discriminate against our neighbor nations, Canada and Mexico have been authorized to impose new tariffs totaling up to $3 billion on U.S. exports, starting on December 18th of this year.

On Second Thought, Maybe the U.S. Should Be More Like Europe

The Wall Street Journal reports this morning that the European Union and the United States have again chosen different paths regarding free trade, this time with South Korea. However, for once it’s old Europe that wants to boost economic output by lowering barriers. Meanwhile, in the formerly free market U.S., a Congress beholden to Big Labor throws up roadblocks.
