MAI — Multilateral Agreement on Investment
By now, most informed citizens have heard of the MAI, thanks to independent media, not the mainstream. If you are going to voice your opinion about the MAI, you’d better do so right away. If you delay, the entire matter may be settled shortly. Here are some resources for you, compiled by Antonia Juhasz of the Preamble Center. Never heard of the Preamble Center? We hadn’t either, but they seem to be doing very interesting and useful work.
MAI-related Web Sites
by Antonia Juhasz
“Anti-MAI” Web Sites
Friends of the Earth – US. Information on MAI and the potential environmental impacts.
http://www.nassist.com/mai/ The Canadian Polaris Institute. A collection of high-quality articles on the MAI such as Tony Clarke’s MAI-DAY article and information on the Ethyl case.
“Pro-MAI” Web Sites
http://www.oecd.org/daf/cmis/fdi/ The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s site created to promote the MAI. Lots of information.
http://www.ustr.gov The United States Trade Representative’s office. Official negotiators of the MAI for the U.S. government. (Publisher’s note: so where’s the MAI material? We hunted but found nothing. Strange. Is concealment pro-democracy or anti-democracy?)
http://www.state.gov/www/issues/economic/multilateral.html The United States Department of State. Official negotiators of the MAI for the U.S. government.
