I think not. If these agreements had genuine input from the public then perhaps it would be a different story and each sector of society could benefit somehow from "globalization" or the free trade agreements.

Virtually all economists agree...really? Parts of the west (especially the youth) have been devestated by the offshoring of production to China, India, etc.
