Free Trade Creates Wealth For All

On March 24, 2008, in General, by Neil Stevens

Relatively, the United States has more obese people than any other country in the world, and per capita Mexico is second on the world obesity list. Diabetes is now the leading killer.

These weren’t always true of Mexico, but now they are. Why? NAFTA created wealth, a rising tide lifted all boats, and now Mexicans are ever more likely to be able to buy the food they need, plus the food they want, so much so that they can eat too much.

The human body is made to withstand food shortages. Perpetually having enough food will always create obesity. Weight is a sign of prosperity, and I for one am glad that NAFTA could help Mexico as much as it helped the USA.
