There are three deals and each one is worse than the last, As far as I can tell, the process leading into this is the most deceptive I have ever seen. one of the bills, hopes to globalize services - making huge mistakes which will put Americans into a race to the bottom on wages- it could result in the WTO gaining control by virtue of a service segment being international trade.. Another deal, TTIP, tries to "harmonize" block new chemical regulation, despite huge body of evidence that endocrine disrupting chemicals are dangerous. A recent article in The Guardian shows the US trying to to block European regulation of EDCs, despite a huge cost to society, a recent study by the endocrine society says hundreds of billions of dollars a year in europe, the amount in the US is unknown.. also TTIP wants to vastly expand fracking and drilling, and resume and lock in irreversibly the export of natural gas, something the US has not done since the 1970s, this could make natural gas and electricity a lot more expensive and hurt affordable housing a great deal. Buildings may suddenly be deemed too expensive to heat and torn down. TISA mandates privatization of a great many public services - everything which is sold in any way ends up having to be sold in a country and the public service part privatized. This is because it relies on GATS (for example Article 1:3) for its definitions of what is a service supplied as an exercise of government authority (not privatized) or a "service" privatized. Virtually all public services fail. Additionally - they are trying to deregulate financial services again, making the same mistake we made in 1999 when, because of WTO rules, we repealed the 1933 Glass-Steagall Act, leading to the loss of firewalls between business and banking- and the creation of incredibly complex "products" which - by all accounts was one of the major factors behind the 2008 financial disaster. Now, with TISA we are trying to use trade deals clout to force a number of arguably quite unwise hidden agandas, quietly on the world and the US, without any scrutiny. If this happens we're likely to learn fast how important transparency is, however, it would be a lot less potentially dangerous for us to make this realizion without a disaster being needed to teach us. For example, wouldnt it have been better if we had stopped the Japanese fleet at pearl harbor instead of allowed them to attack unawares? Millions of lives would have been saved.
