									CHAPTER 8 INTERNATIONAL LAW
INTERNET QUESTIONS
1.      Search the internet for information on NAFTA, including its alleged successes
and failures. After that, look for information on the proposed Free Trade Area of the
Americas (FTAA). Based on what you found regarding NAFTA, what do you think of
the likelihood of success for the FTAA? Why?
2.      Use the internet to find information and definitions for the Act of State Doctrine
and the Doctrine of Sovereign Immunity. How are they different? How are they similar?
Why do each of these doctrines exist in international law?
3.      During the economic crisis now being called the Great Recession, the U.S.
government bailed out a number of businesses that were said to be “too big to fail.”
These bail-outs were praised by some and condemned by others, including some people
who believed that the federal government had nationalized the banks, as well as General
Motors and Chrysler. Search the internet for articles addressing this issue and then
decide: Did the federal government nationalize these businesses?
