  •  one thing free trade agreements do is undermine (0+ / 0-)

    national borders and immigration policies.  It is, after all, impossible for jobs to move freely across borders unless workers are also able to move freely where the jobs are.

    •  The hypthetical real free trade agreements ... (0+ / 0-)

      ... or the actual agreements reached under the label of "free trade agreements"?

      Actual FTA's tend to rely upon existing national borders and immigration policies, since without them, the special treatment on specified products in the FTA trade schedule is much less attractive and much less reason to dismantle controls on cross-border flows of corporation financial wealth.
