The free trade game
Its advocates say free trade is the key to progress and prosperity. But the panacea is not all it's cracked up to be. The North American Free Trade Agreement, which has been in force for more than a decade, has been a recipe for disaster.

This issue charts the history of free trade and profiles the resistance to its continued expansion across Latin America.
