Triple Crisis blogger Timothy A. Wise was recently interviewed by The Real News Network on President Obama’s Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP), based on his recent LATN Brief, “U.S. Trade Policy: ‘Still Waiting for a “21st Century Trade Agreement’,” co-authored with Kevin P. Gallagher. He argues that the TPP is simply an extension of the failed NAFTA model that creates asymmetry between trading partners and primarily protects the rights of multinational firms.
