This paper examines the potential impact of a Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA) agreement upon Brazil by looking more closely at the impact of NAFTA upon Mexico. In particular, the paper looks at worker conditions in Mexico, the heavy reliance of Mexico upon maquiladoras and the US economy, the disruptive impact of free trade upon many of Mexico's prime industries (chiefly agriculture) and the implications of free trade for the long-term viability of Mexico's present education system. Lastly, the paper also explores what the free trade environment has meant for that "other" environment - Mexico's fragile ecology. References to Brazil are interspersed throughout and the paper ends by suggesting that the country should hold off signing onto any free trade package unless it wishes to suffer a fate similar to Mexico's.
