NAFTA: The Intersection of the Geopolitics and Geoeconomics of Capital
This analysis of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) compares it to earlier experiments in geopolitical and geoeconomic “enlargement” that were tested in the long period between the establishment of a new world order based on the Treaty of Versailles and the emergence of what has come to be called the Bretton Woods arrangement, in the aftermath of World War II. Special attention is paid to how vast segments of Mexican laws and regulations were rewritten in accordance with the commitments undertaken through NAFTA, which enshrines the profound imbalances between Mexico and the United States.
