Tpp: Trans Pacific Partnership.

Recommended Posts

It's the Pacific equivalent of the ttip which will affect Europe.

See

www.independent.co.uk/voices/comment/what-is-ttip-and-six-reasons-why-the-answer-should-scare-you-9779688.html

Some of the insidious elements include

Handing more power to the banksters

Safety and testing of products can be overlooked

Privatisation of state services (I.e. NHS)

Corporations can sue countries for theoretical loss of profits if their product is banned by legislation

Other stuff I recall has been brought up here in the last 8 months but seems of little consequence to many but is a huge boiling frog of a change.

Get out now! We're all doomed!

Got love that one, we had a great profit it would have sold X you therefore owe us Y. Brilliant. The aim of this game is to develop products that will get banned!

This was the headline issue for me. Basically formal recognition in international law of something we have long suspected - corporates are more powerful than sovereign countries. Get used to it.
