A brief note on the TPP
I haven't followed the argument over the TPP closely, and I'm certainly no expert on such matters, but where economics and workers' interests are concerned, I have to give a lot of weight to the views of Elizabeth Warren and Paul Krugman. Yes, I know that "fast track" is how such deals have always been done in the past -- and maybe that's part of the problem. If business-as-usual is how we get things like NAFTA, then it's about time that business-as-usual was changed. Let's hope this is the beginning of the end of the relentless advance of economic globalization which always ends up benefiting only the bosses and investors, at the expense of the workers and the real economy.
