U.S. lawmakers were in Montreal over the weekend for NAFTA talks. On today’s show, economic policy analyst Stephen Moore discussed what’s happening with NAFTA negotiations as well as why intellectual property protections are so important.
“More and more of what we produce in the United States is intellectual property,” Moore explained, listing patents, copyrights, new technologies and music as examples. “We have to be paid for that because it takes a lot of money to produce these things,” he said.
Moore also talked about why he supports NAFTA renegotiations and believes that China is a threat. Doc wanted to know what NAFTA has done for American workers and whether it’s worth it to renegotiate.
