Featuring Dan Griswold, Associate Director, Center for Trade Policy Studies Cato Institute; and Mario Canahuati, Ambassador of Honduras.

With passage this month of the free‐​trade agreement with Australia, Congress will soon turn its attention to proposed agreements with Morocco, the Dominican Republic, and five Central American countries (CAFTA). What will these agreements mean for U.S. workers and the economy? And what will they mean for the war on terrorism and other U.S. foreign policy interests? Cato trade policy expert Dan Griswold will share his research and insights on the free‐​trade agreements coming before Congress. Ambassador Canahuati will offer his insights on what these agreements mean for Honduras.
