March 31, 2017

Re:CAP Recommends:  “U.S.-Mexico relations: Beyond “America first” Rhetoric.” from Brookings

Who: Dany Bahar is a fellow in the Global Economy and Development program and an associate at the Harvard Center for International Development. His research focuses on economic development. Vanda Felbab-Brown, senior fellow in the Center for 21st Century Security and Intelligence, is an expert on international and internal conflicts and nontraditional security threats.

What: In this podcast, Brookings discusses how the Trump administration, misconceptions about NAFTA, immigration, and crime have impacted U.S.-Mexico relations. This research focuses on impacts to current U.S. trade agreements and immigration. 

Takeaway: American rhetoric from the current Administration may not only result in a renegotiated trade deal, but may more importantly result in a shoddier trade deal with our neighbors.
