As the ratification fight intensifies, we're watching closely as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) winds its way through national legislatures across the globe. So grab your popcorn, and let's take a look at where the TPP stands in each country yet to ratify.

Appreciate the review, but not the oh-so-lighthearted tone. The best information is in the closing summary about Japan and the US. Most others are waiting to see, Vietnam would have to make constitutional changes (it would be nice to know what those are).

Excellent 8 minute video - TPP is for the oligarchs and Obama is trying to push it through

President Obama is rushing to pass the sovereignty-crushing Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) in the lame duck session of Congress in order to save Hillary Clinton from revealing that she supports it, which she’ll have to do if she wins the White House, says Cenk Uygur of “The Young Turks.”

Both Clinton and Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump came out against the deal in the primary season. Critics, including Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren, say the TPP enables corporations to sue signatory governments that pass laws, rules and regulations that cut into their profits by protecting workers, the public or the environment.

Thanks for this heads up.

Would like to see this done with a bit more depth. Some of the broad statements become dismissive. For instance, the Mexicans do not much appreciate Trump's racism, but if he rescinds NAFTA, he could be a national hero down there. They have lost tends of thousands of lives to the narco wars promoted by NAFTA and CIA penetration of the PRI and PAN.
