The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) ranks at the top of anyone’s list of the most controversial trade deals of all time. Reviled by critics as unfair and as a job destroyer, praised by its defenders as having a documented record of success in spurring economic growth, NAFTA reduced tariff barriers to zero for the United States, Mexico, and Canada and led to a tripling of trade among these three countries over the last 23 years. The Peterson Institute for International Economics (PIIE) has abundantly detailed the many gains and acknowledged costs of NAFTA in numerous publications. Now that President Donald Trump has launched a renegotiation of NAFTA—having at least for the moment abandoned his 2016 campaign pledge to cancel the pact outright—the fundamental question is: Can such a renegotiation produce a positive result? A broad range of experts who have contributed to this PIIE Briefing say “yes.” The new negotiations can succeed only if they focus on how the agreement can be updated and upgraded, however. NAFTA can be modernized only if President Trump’s zero-sum “America First” agenda is replaced by one that seeks to benefit all three countries and improve their competitiveness in an increasingly competitive global economy. Prioritizing American interests is of course essential in any US trade negotiation. But an obsessive concern about bilateral trade balances and narrow special interests in the United States, as opposed to broader national and regional interests, would not only deadlock the negotiations but also likely lead to inferior outcomes for all three countries, or even a breakdown in the talks and an abrogation of the agreement. And walking away from NAFTA altogether would be disastrous for consumers, producers, and retailers in the United States. As argued in several chapters of this Briefing, abandoning NAFTA would degrade regional competitiveness and terminate jobs across North America, undoing the integration achieved since the agreement’s inception.

Immer mehr erweist sich der Staat als unfähig, die Probleme, zu deren Lösung er angeblich angetreten ist, annähernd in den Griff zu bekommen – sei es die Fürsorge für die Armen, die innere und äußere Sicherheit, Bildung, Rechtsprechung oder medizinische Versorgung. Stattdessen greift er immer schwerwiegender in die individuellen Rechte seiner Bürger ein, immer mehr werden sie enteignet, bevormundet und überwacht. Immer mehr Menschen erkennen dies, dennoch setzen die meisten weiterhin auf staatliche Lösungen – denn ganz ohne Staat geht es ja nun mal nicht, oder? David D. Friedman hat in „The Machinery of Freedom“ im Jahre 1973 gezeigt, wie es gehen kann: Immer orientiert an der praktischen Umsetzbarkeit, geht er auch schwierige Fragen wie den Aufbau einer nichtstaatlichen Gerichtsbarkeit und Landesverteidigung an und zeigt überraschende Lösungen auf. Friedmans Klassiker wurde damit zum Kult für die Bewegung der Anarchokapitalisten. Das Buch wurde 2014 für die dritte Auflage von Friedman überarbeitet und ergänzt. Diese aktualisierte Fassung liegt dieser zweiten deutschen Übersetzung zugrunde.
