What is the Trans-Pacific Partnership?

Friday, 13 September 2013 | A Public Affair

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is something that most people haven’t heard about, but on Friday September 13th our host Esty Dinur and her guests David Rosnick and David Newby gave us a break down of how the TPP agreement could affect the United States.

Dinur first spoke with Rosnick about the TPP and the possible consequences that it may have for not only the United States, but also for the global community. Dinur also spoke with Newby about what the TPP is and what we do know from leaks of the secret negotiations. When explaining what the TPP is to us Newby said, “What’s behind the whole affair is the multinational corporation’s to agenda for structuring and controlling the global economy.”
