The North American Free Trade Agreement: Who Benefits in the Long Run?

The editorial "Free Trade's Rough Ride," July 24, seems to under emphasize the importance of environmental and labor concerns in the analysis of the long-term benefits of the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Reports about the effects of the agreement with Canada seem to indicate serious problems between longtime friendly neighbors that could have been eliminated by including labor representatives and environmentalists on an equal basis in the preliminary negotiations. There are strong indications that the treaty's terms only emphasize the erosion of democracy that is threatening our economy and stability. When we dream of "One World" we must certainly include all of the world's people. Dorothy Peterson, New Providence, Pa.
