Abstract

The New Year’s Eve party is over and President Carlos Salinas de Gortari has gone to bed happy, knowing that towards the end of his presidency Mexico is now entering “the First World.” With the NAFTA entering into effect with the New Year, Mexico, Canada, and the United States of America would now establish a “free trade zone” under which goods and services would now move freely between those three countries. Not people, however, but that is a different story. Of course, that would also mean the full exposure of Mexican small-scale agricultural producers to unfair competition by the North American multinationals that were producing more cheaply and in larger quantities.
