Friday, January 10, 2014 at 7:20 pm: Bring Democracy to Trade Deal!
The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a sweeping trade agreement which the U.S. has been negotiating behind closed doors with Australia, Canada, Japan, and eight other countries in the Pacific region. Critics say the deal could rewrite U.S. laws on intellectual property rights, product safety, and environmental regulations, while backers say it will help create jobs and boost the economy. President Obama and U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman reportedly are working to finalize the TPP soon and are urging Congress to expedite legislation using “fast-track authority”. However, activists are pushing back for more democratic processes and agreements which better support citizen (vs. corporate) interests. Tonight we’ll view and discuss the November 2013 Moyers and Company http://billmoyers.com/ TPP segment with guest activists from Naked Capitalism and Center for Economic and Policy Research, and Democracy Now http://www.democracynow.org/ November segment on TPP WikiLeaks exposure with debate between libertarian think tank Cato Institute and fair trade group Public Citizen guests.
