Description

Extra examines opinions in favor and against the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA), the extension of the North American Free Trade Agreement, which is supposed to spread democracy to the countries in Latin America by lowering tariffs and opening their markets. The article reports on the ongoing negotiations among the 34 countries that will sign the agreement. The story asks the question, "Will President Bush insist on high labor and environmental standards like his predecessor, and if not, will his constituents make him?"
