President Donald Trump's new trade deal with Mexico and Canada won't get a vote in Congress this year, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said. "My trade advisers says you can't possibly do it under the various steps that we have to go through. I had not heard that it might be possible to address it this year," McConnell said in an interview with Bloomberg News Tuesday in Washington. McConnell said he has not had conversations with the White House about wrapping it up this year. "There's no question this will be on the top of the agenda" next year,... [Read More]

The US, Mexico, Canada trade agreement was reached on September 30. The deal will be called the US-Mexico-Canada Agreement, or USMCA, in Canada and the US. But since the deal is considered a treaty and not an agreement in Mexico, the country will need a new name. The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) was called the Tratado de Libre Comercio de América del Norte (TLCAN) in Mexico. Incoming Mexican president Andrés Manuel López Obrado started a poll on Twitter to get feedback for the name. The options were TEUMECA, T-MEC, or other. Mexico's incoming president, Andrés...

Last week the United States, Mexico, and Canada agreed to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) with a new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). Sadly, instead of replacing NAFTA's managed trade with true free trade, the new USMCA expands government's control over trade. For example, under the USMCA's "rules of origin," at least 75 percent of a car's parts must be from the US, Canada, or Mexico in order to avoid tariffs. This is protectionism designed to raise prices of cars using materials from outside North America. The USMCA also requires that 40 to 45 percent of an... [Read More]
