"Everytime I buy a piece of clothing, I look at the label and I can probably tell you the particular trade program under which it was made."

Edward Alden, a U.S. trade policy expert and the Bernard L. Schwartz Senior Fellow at The Council on Foreign Relations, discusses NAFTA's past, present and future with The Takeaway.
