Written before Free Trade became a part of Canadian society, readable and hard-hitting, The Facts on Free Trade explains what the deal says, and what it means.
If you're interested in cutting through the hype and learning more about free trade, you should read this book. In The Facts on Free Trade , a diverse and impressive group of writers - academics, social activists, union officials and others - provide independent and objective assessments of the impact of free trade on our economy, our society and our culture.
