Leading contributing factors of youth violence include the media, the influence of family life, widespread abuse of ...

    I. The Origins of NAFTA The underlying rationale not only of NAFTA, but of all free trade agreements is the belief that international trade is a win-win proposition. This belief is based on theories developed by theorists such as Adam Smith and David Ricardo, who dismissed the mercantilist view that a country could only gain at the expense of its rival.
