Steven L. Wartick
In December of 1994, the United States and the other thirty-three heads of state from the democracies in the western hemisphere met in Miami to discuss the creation of a hemispherewide free trade area, known as the Free Trade Area of the Americas. Negotiations for the free trade agreement were set for completion by January of 2005, with implementation by December 31, 2005. Ten years later, the idealistic ambitions seem to have dimmed and the western hemisphere seems as far from agreement as ever. Amidst security concerns, conflicting interests and vastly different levels of development, is there any hope?
