NAFTA And The New Economic Frontier
Life Along The U.S./Mexico BorderStreaming Video - 2006
In this program, ABC News correspondent Judy Muller reports on the quality of life along the international border between El Paso and Juarez since the implementation of NAFTA. Apart from business opportunities for Americans, employment for Mexicans, and low-priced goods for both the U.S. and Mexico, the downside of NAFTA is becoming all too apparent: worsening living conditions in Juarez and increasing levels of air and water pollution on both sides of the border. The program concludes with a discussion between anchor Ted Koppel and Fernando Macias, leader of a consortium of American and Mexican officials charged with managing change along this new economic frontier.
