The Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) is the biggest free trade deal you've never heard of.
Dubbed "NAFTA on steroids" it would include 12 countries and 40% of the world's economy. Free trade deals like this have devastated the middle class, sending good jobs overseas and driving down standards of living world wide. The TPP is currently being negotiated in secret by 300 advisers from the largest transnational corporations with no transparency or input form the public. What little we know about the TPP indicates that it would gut labor, environmental, health , and food safety regulations. Most disturbingly the TPP would set up a private judicial system where corporations could challenge sovereign nations' laws over regulations they claim caused them to lose profits.
