|Sujet: Is it true that free trade agreements are destroying the United States ? Mar 28 Avr 2015 - 0:08|| |
As a haitian american i know for sure the trade agreement between the United States and Haiti is destroying Haiti not the United States. Bill Clinton destroyed the rice production in haiti. American commercial policy destroyed agriculture in haiti. We are importing food from the United States. Haiti used to export sugar ,coffe, coton, cocoa, sisal to the United States ;right now it is importing sugar and food for more than a billion dollars a year. Most haitians who used to work in agriculture are living outside their country ,those who can not leave are working for less than 4 dollars a day in sweat shops.Maybe the average american worker is not the beneficiary of these trade agreements .but ask Bill and Hillary Clinton they will tell you who are the real beneficiaries of the trade agreement he extracted from Jean Bertrand Aristide before he returned him to power in Haiti.
When Aristide didn't want to implement the trade agreement he signed with Bill Clinton ,Georges bush told him in Mexico :You have a last chance. Soon after that he was overthrown and deported to South Africa by a coalition of the governments of the United States , France and Canada.
Does the United States have a negative commercial balance with all its trade partners? With the globalisation of the economy can a country prosper in isolation? What would happen if all the countries of the world decide to boycott american products
China is not only lending some rich countries like Venezuela money ,it is building their infrastructures also. Where do you think the Venezuelans will buy what they need in the future ?
Wait until the Chinese start to produce cars, airplanes, computers and electronic you will see what will happen in Japan ,Europe and the United States .Some people can not see further than the tip of their nose, but they think they are experts in foreign policy.
Add India and Brazil to the global economy ,and you will see that the world is changing.I remember President Obama said :We no longer live in a world where Roosevelt, Staline and Churchil can decide the future of the world.
