Is Your Supply Chain Ready for a NAFTA Overhaul? - HBR
The proposed “border adjustment” that is part of a tax reform package Congress is debating could cause the U.S. dollar to appreciate relative to other currencies. Under the plan, companies would not be able to deduct the cost of imports from their revenue, a move that today enables them to lower their overall tax burden. At the same time, exports and other foreign sales would be made tax free.

NAFTA 2.0 and the Art of the Deal - Global Trade Magazine
Is renegotiating NAFTA a good idea‭? ‬It depends what you are trying to accomplish.‭ ‬No agreement is perfect,‭ ‬and commerce has changed markedly since‭ ‬1994‭—‬for example,‭ ‬when NAFTA entered into force,‭ ‬there was no commercial use of the internet.‭ ‬Modernizing and updating the agreement is a worthwhile objective.‭ ‬Yet trade agreements are typically effect,‭ ‬not cause:‭ ‬nations make agreements because existing commercial relationships are important,‭ ‬not the other way around.‭ ‬Overall,‭ ‬NAFTA has helped to triple merchandise trade among the three economies in nominal terms,‭ ‬from‭ ‬$306‭ ‬billion in‭ ‬1993‭ ‬to just over‭ ‬$1‭ ‬trillion in‭ ‬2015.‭ ‬But it’s important to remember that Canada and Mexico were the United States‭’ ‬number‭ ‬1‭ ‬and number‭ ‬3‭ ‬trading partners respectively before NAFTA,‭ ‬and they hold the same rank today.
