TPP Secrets & Provisions + Obama’s Global Economic Quest with POLITICO’s Doug Palmer

vor 4 Jahren

The TPP and Obama’s desire to fast track the trade agreement that expands NAFTA is explored with POLITICO’s Doug Palmer. How big pharma stands to gain, and how cheese farmers in Wisconsin might lose, plus Obama’s stake in the game is all discussed. We ask about the possibility of a future global corporatocracy, the fear of the Chinese economy, and the possibility of added crackdowns on journalists and whistleblowers through the TPP fine print, in this Lip News Interview, hosted by Jackie Koppell.

Doug Palmer is one of the most experienced trade reporters in Washington after nearly 15 years on the beat. He was on the scene when efforts to launch world trade talks failed in Seattle in 1999 to the delight of thousands of protesters who clashed with police throughout the week. Since then, Palmer has covered trade negotiations with more than a dozen countries as well as the long-running Doha round of world trade negotiations, which was launched in 2001 and still has not successfully concluded. Palmer's job currently includes keeping tabs on trade frictions with China and negotiations on two huge regional free regional trade agreements, the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership.
