The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) between Canada, the United States, and Mexico was supposed to protect the environment, create high-wage U.S. jobs, and raise the living standards of all three countries. The downside is the loss of over half a million U.S. jobs when companies moved jobs to cheaper labor markets, and the near destruction of the Mexican farming industry due to government subsidized produce from the U.S. entering the Mexican market, and a dysfunctional public administration in Canada. This episode looks at the costs of the agreement on the environment, civil liberties, labor and health. Also featured is a Sarajevo "Video Diary," a report on the Tamil Tiger rebels in Sri Lanka, and human rights abuses against illegal immigrants at the U.S./Mexico border.
