Cartoon: Trans-Pacific speculation

by Brian McFadden

The portions of the Trans-Pacific Partnership that have been leaked show that it’s a giveaway to corporate interests. Only legislators and lobbyists have seen the whole thing, and most of them want to "fast-track" it to prevent amendments and keep the pesky public from commenting on its terribleness.

If the minutiae of trade deals seems too arcane, Robert Reich has a very quick and helpful video about why the TPP is a bad deal for everyone who isn’t a multinational corporate person.
