The TPP is “the largest—and worst—trade deal you’ve never heard of,” says a campaign on moveon.org. In other words, “Nafta on steroids”. You may not have heard of it because the negotiations are all being done in secret. Perhaps even over a round of golf?
Incidentally, Robert Reich in the video above is “an American political economist, professor, author, and political commentator. He served in the administrations of Presidents Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter and was Secretary of Labor under President Bill Clinton from 1993 to 1997” (Wikipedia).
It is time we demand transparency and accountability. Our national economy, domestic businesses and workers’ rights are at stake.
Don’t wait till it is too late. Nothing much is being said in the media, but the impact of TPPA on the economy could be far-reaching.
