Retired US Ambassador Tony Wayne Speaks on Mexico/US Relations

8-22-17   With extensive experience in economics and as Ambassador to Mexico, Tony Wayne shared with us his views on the importance of the U.S. Mexican relationship, with greatest emphasis on the economics of the relationship.  Using a variety of charts and graphs, he showed how trade has grown over the years in both countries, especially since NAFTA.  His charts went into detail on job growth since NAFTA.  In sum, his view is that NAFTA has benefited both countries, but badly needs updating. In this regard, he cautioned a careful approach to the update, so that the baby is not thrown out with the bathwater.
