THE TRANS-PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP
The deal has been struck. The clock is now ticking before Congress must make an up-or-down vote on this agreement, which is being sold as an expansion of “free trade”äóîbut does it actually let corporations write the rules for their own benefit? This forum will examine the TPP and how it will affect our lives if approved by Congress in early 2016.
