The Trans-Pacific Partnership: Written in Secrecy, An Affront to Democracy

Stan Sorscher
Some time this year, President Obama will ask Congress to approve a new trade agreement, called the Trans-Pacific Partnership, or TPP.
Everyone I know is in favor of trade. We take pride when Washington state produces and exports airplanes, apples, soft white wheat and software.
It should be obvious, however, that we can have good trade policy or bad trade policy.

As more and more international control supersedes single nation laws, rules and legislation the more representative democracy dies and it becomes necessary to reinvent democracy on an international level.
