  •  NAFTA sold out the poor, made the rich richer (3+ / 0-)

    The elites in Mexico and the USA have made a fortune from the NAFTA deals, and the poor people have gotten the shaft once again- does this surprise anyone here?

    Corn farmers in Mexico get way less for their corn, so they are driven off the land, yet the middlemen have marked up the ground corn so much that tortilla prices have doubled!

    Quite the deal for the ones making the profits- lower cost input, then much higher cost output.  This started well before corn prices increased with the ethanol subsidy boom.
