Over time, U.S. free trade agreements (FTAs) have expanded in depth and breadth, a trend that is consistent with the expansion of Congress’s negotiating priorities in its trade promotion authority (TPA) legislation. Many stakeholders support increasingly detailed and prescriptive FTA requirements, stating that they help level the playing field when other markets are less open than those of the United States; foster a more transparent and rules-based system; and address new challenges as technology and circumstances evolve. Other stakeholders, however, state that U.S. FTAs often serve the interests of multinational corporations at the expense of American workers—for example, by promoting trade
liberalization and investor protections while failing to adequately protect worker rights and the
environment.
