The paper explores the United States' policy and actions in regard to its North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and Central America Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA). The paper discusses the protectionism being exercised by the U.S as well as the import of specific goods from countries outside of the CAFTA trade agreement. The paper also examines the influence and effect of the United States' monetary system on free trade and the potential benefits of a global free trade system. The paper shows how the U.S. does not always follow its own policy on free trade when it has the choice of increasing its profits and its bottom line.

Influence and Effect of U.S. Monetary System on Free Trade
Global Free Trade System

From the Paper:

"The United States has championed the cause of free trade in North America, also know as NAFTA. The policy that the U.S. has put forth allows for free trade amongst Canada and Mexico and with the inception of the CAFTA or Central America Free Trade Agreement, many South American countries as well. The issue at hand is whether or not the U.S backs up its policy on free trade with its actions towards the countries in the two agreements as well as other various relationships it has with the export and import of good from other countries that are not apart of NAFTA or CAFTA."
