In this Article, Messrs. Silva and Dunn demonstrate that the intended Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between the United States and Mexico is a natural and necessary step in the two countries' economic relations. Their approach is to trace the steps which have led to the FTA and to analyze the evolution and progression of Mexican economic, legal, and political polices which have reached a point permitting and necessitating a trade pact. An agreement between the two countries is both logical and compelled though it will have permanent consequences and potential obstacles. Nevertheless, the agreement must be implemented and with an ample degree of haste.
