TPP? Chomsky Dicussing the Disastrous Free-Trade Agreement - NAFTA

If you're weary of the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) you should be.  NAFTA turned out to do exactly what Chomsky said it would.  Neo-Liberalization was the answer to a strong labor community that enjoyed record standards of living.  Corporate America waged an all out war in the '70s to reduce labor's influence.



Conservatives squawking about border issues and refugees should take a close look at the Mexican agriculture sector that was devastated after the passage of NAFTA. Farmers who were able to support themselves before NAFTA weren't able to afterward. When a foreign government can undersell domestic farmers - you're left with few alternatives.




If your skeptical of the TPP, you have a good reason to be so. We've seen this song and dance before with NAFTA. Could we at least let our senators read the bill? Corporations got to look it over.
