Stealth Trade Agreement Secret Negotiations
TPP is an assault on personal freedoms.
by Stephen Lendman
Two other articles address the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). They discuss what the companion article to this one calls a trade deal from hell.
Public Citizen's Global Trade Watch says it's a "Corporate Power Tool of the 1%." Secret negotiations plan:
- offshoring millions more US jobs to low wage countries;
- freeing giant banking crooks entirely from oversight;
- banning "Buy America" policies in deference to global marketplace mandates;
- decreasing access to medicines and making prescription drugs less affordable;
- infesting America with toxic foods and other harmful products; and
- destroying fast eroding environmental and health safeguards.
