Sep 21, 2018 NAFTA Effects w/Alyshia Galvez Dr Galvez Discusses Recent Book abt NAFTA's Impact on Mexico
It's a Friday, and Delaney is back in the good ol' US of A for today's podcast! She brings up to speed on the things she learned and saw while in Ireland at the National Ploughing Championships over the last week. Some of the things were surprisingly different, others surprisingly similar. We also have a riot of trade news for today's episode - China is buying US beans again, an FTA w/ India is in the works, and the US/Mexico NAFTA replacement deal looks closer than ever. To tie in to that bit of news, we have a conversation today with Dr. Alyshia Galvez, professor at CUNY Lehman College, about her recent book "Eating NAFTA", about NAFTA's impact on the Mexican consumer. It makes for an interesting shift in the way we (Americans) typically think about trade, and our discussion could have gone on for hours! Be sure to listen over the weekend, and for those starting harvest, stay safe!
