It’s been 20 years since Perot made his claim, and now it’s time for you to make yours. Research NAFTA and its effects and post to the discussion board as to whether you think it was a beneficial trade agreement for the U.S. Support your stance with solid facts and figures.

There are also additional articles in Resources that you can use when answering this question.
