Can we Repeal NAFTA? Do we even want to?

Trump got elected on the promise that he will repeal NAFTA and bring American jobs back from China and Mexico. I thought that was boneheaded from the beginning. I mean, look at Chinese factory towns, like, do it, right now:

EW!!!

Do we really want to bring THIS back to America? And even if we think we can do it on “American terms” with cleanliness and standards, who are we kidding? The world  is addicted to a steady diet of rock-bottom prices. Nobody will buy goods that have been made in factories with Western standards.

But say we do bring them back, and we ruin our environment. Will Wal-Mart dismantle its whole supply chain to suddenly start supporting American manufactured goods? I doubt it. Chances are Wal-Mart will prevent Trump from making good on his promise.

Here is a good article that says basically the same thing. Promising to get us out of NAFTA was one thing, but actually doing it is another. Why American voters fell for this line of crap is a whole other article.
