  •  joe the tpp is considered "nafta on steroids" (5+ / 0-)

    here's a quick and easy introduction.

    nafta caused a loss of an estimated 7-800,000 american jobs and around 1.3 million mexican jobs, particularly in the mexican agriculture sector which was decimated by cheap american industrial corn.  this not only caused economic dislocations and suffering, it also exacerbated our immigration problems.  nafta is also an environmental disaster as corporations are allowed to sue communities that don't care to be disaster zones not only for lost costs but also for anticipated profits.  tpp will continue that tradition in all likelihood.

    happy reading!
