The TPP Is About Corporate Power

If it isn’t clear what the most dangerous aspect of the TPP is, it’s about the ability of corporations to become more powerful than nations. This is dangerous to all people, all around the globe.

Contents of leaked drafts make it pretty obvious why this is being pushed through in such a sneaky way. You might have heard some people focus on the probability that the TPP will cause the U.S. economy to lose jobs… Though this concern may be valid, it’s hardly the most dangerous part of the agreement.

The real danger lies in the way this agreement subverts the sovereignty of nations… This isn’t about trade. This isn’t about jobs. This is about power. Power that is being covertly shifted farther and farther away from the people.

Who’s Writing?

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.

Chester

Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!

Graffiti Girl

Graffiti Girl (GG) is curator at JoAnnChateau.com. She's progressive to the core, and easily blown away by serendipity and/or good food. (OK, GG is really JoAnn.) GG's posts signal that news or content from another website is a "must-see" and "must-remember."
