Excerpt: "The Trans-Pacific Partnership, now headed to Congress, is a product of big corporations and Wall Street, seeking to circumvent regulations protecting workers, consumers, and the environment."

Robert Reich | The Worst Trade Deal You Never Heard Of

By Robert Reich

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

TTIP will take us from The 'SLAVE TRADE' into becoming 'TRADE SLAVES'

To even consider that O is unaware of what this will do is laughable. It's probably his reason for being....where he is :)

Those of us that bother to keep informed over here in Japan, we are also gobsmacked by it all. Everything that Robert Reich says also applies to the other countries that sign up. And there is increasing resentment here of America, which is allowing this to happen.
