    US trade officials say it’s their way or the highway on TPP | 21-August-2014
    Bernard k. Gordon: The title of this report does not comport with the facts as contained in the report. The US acted in good faith, in a way specifically designed to promote sound environmental goals related to forestry. Those goals were supported by the U.S. Congress ...
    War of the FTAs | 21-August-2014
    Bernard k. Gordon: A biased and ill-informed report. Among many other problems, it misstates the original goals of the WTO, and it totally ignores the facts surrounding the creation of the TPP. It is in essence a scare-tactic report that does not warrant serious atten ...
