This book is fantastic and everything Perot predicted has come true.

I read "from a customer" review. What a joke, free trade is for suckers. Professor John Lott a doctor of economics was extolling the virtues of "free trade." I asked him to explain how an unemployed auto worker in Detroit benefitted the US. I never heard a word back from him or any other so-called expert on free trade. Gutting a country of its manufacturing base is the kiss of death. Why do you think Alexander Hamilton put the tariff system in in 1791 it was to encourage domestic manufacturing? Pure greed has caused this situation and Perot's book explains it perfectly.

Most of these people who have the "free trade" bug have not had their jobs sent somewhere else.

I re-read this book just to check the accuracy of the predictions. The corruption has been exposed. The economic problems and job losses have occured. The 'Giant Sucking Sound' has been felt all across our manufacturing industries. Ross and Pat were right again.

Perot template for conservatism that is based on data and analysis.

Some investors, executives, and lobbyists (not to mention the media) made a lot of money off NAFTA and are going to argue that it was a success.

But a lie can only go so far before it eventually gets exposed. There is absolutely no denying that NAFTA cost hundreds of thousands of American jobs, rather than created them. And the American workers who didn't lose their jobs from it were impoverished. Don't believe me? Look what happened at American Axle. The workers took a 50% pay and benefit cut, and a year later, they lost their jobs to Mexico anyways. All in the name of cheaper labor.

Now we are in the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression, with the most imbalanced distribution of wealth in our country's history. And I think it's pretty obvious NAFTA is to blame. Shame on everybody who pushed for it or voted for it.

Again, Ross Perot and Pat Choate were absolutely right about this...

Pat Choate's comment above is very funny since it tries to minimize the foolishness of those who would want to construct trade barriers to save jobs in the short run, only to loose them in the long run. This book is out of print BECAUSE it was wrong then and it is wrong now!
The WALL STREET JOURNAL immediately reviewed this book in 1993 and wrote: "This book is vintage Ross Perot. Catchy phrases, damning quotes, simple charts and simplistic arguments are deployed brilliantly in a short, pithy frontal attach on [NAFTA]..."
Could someone tell these guys that their careers as international economic experts just didn't work out?
