The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

North American Free Trade.

Kehoe, Timothy J.

The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) creates a free trade area in Canada, Mexico, and the United States that is larger, in terms of both gross domestic product and population, than the European Community. This article summarizes the results of a number of static applied general equilibrium analyses of the impact of NAFTA. The impact is expected to be favorable in all three countries, but relatively small, particularly in Canada and the U.S., which already have their own free trade agreement. The article suggests that the dynamic impact of NAFTA, which takes into account the impact on capital flows and growth rates, will be substantially larger, especially in Mexico. The research upon which this article was based was supported by a Faculty Interactive Research Program grant from CURA.
