My Conversation with Susan Schwab

Trade has become a hot and much discussed political topic. Both Democratic candidates have criticized NAFTA and other free trade agreements for hurting U.S. workers. Last month the Bush administration's proposed Colombia free trade agreement was blocked in the House of Representatives. Other proposed trade deals with South Korea and Panama could also face tough scrutiny. I talked about the issue recently with the U.S. trade representative, Susan Schwab.
