TRADE AGREEMENTS – PART II
[Click Here for Part 1 TPP: A New Era of Economic Enslavement]
by James Hall, 21st Century Wire:
The other leg to the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is called the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).
In our Part I scrutiny of the TPP proposal indicates that standards of monopoly amalgamation far exceeded efforts to advance actual competitive trade.
From the White House Fact Sheet, the aims of the TTIP are:
• Further open EU markets, increasing the $458 billion in goods and private services the United States exported in 2012 to the EU, our largest export market.
• Strengthen rules-based investment to grow the world’s largest investment relationship. The United States and the EU already maintain a total of nearly $3.7 trillion in investment in each other’s economies (as of 2011).
