Imports, Exports, and Jobs: What Does Trade Mean for Employment and Job Loss?

Lori G. Kletzer

A "Noteworthy Book in Industrial Relations and Labor Economics," 2002, Industrial Relations Section – Princeton University

Kletzer finds that free trade pacts such as NAFTA can and do facilitate economic growth, but that open engagement with the world does not help everyone. That the numbers may be small, or that they are associated with a particular set of industries, does not diminish the extent of human costs. Proponents of expanded open trade and investment, she concludes, face an obligation to address the concerns of workers, companies, and communities who can be hurt by free trade.
