US-South Korea: Free Trade vs. jobs. (By Sylodium, global import export directory).

America now has 23 million people without full-time job that they would like to have.

last year, Obama said that the signing of FTA with South Korea, Panama and Colombia would create U.S. jobs because US would double their exports, but reality is, that in one side, it is certain that FTA create jobs for many exporters, but in other side, not just in low-end industries but also in the electronic equipment manufacturing industry, FTA (in the case of South Korea) will destroy jobs, like happens in general with trade liberalizations with China.

In any case, any FTA involve advantages and disadvantages, that oblige to think carefully with which countries to sign it, but in general, non country can go against the global trend:  “trade liberalization”.
