The Corporate Trade Agreements Get More Secret, Why Do They Hide?
It seems pretty obvious that when massive transnational corporations ally with government to secretly negotiate trade agreements that these agreements are not going to be good for the people, small businesses or the planet. In fact, these falsely labeled “free” trade agreements have destroyed the US economy resulting in a massive transfer of wealth demonstrated by 30 years of trade deficits, resulting in lost jobs, indeed lost industries.Benjamin Clement explains why the US keeps pushing corporate trade:
These trade agreements are a form of neocolonialism where western corporations dominate poor, developing countries. They allow corporations to take their natural resources at low cost and produce slave labor jobs while driving wealth to the oligarchs and transnational corporations. Not only do corporate rigged trade agreements enslave developing nations to western corporations, but they also add to racial unrest in the United States. Isaiah Poole describes how the hundreds of thousands of lost jobs leave city governments with budget deficits. In places like Ferguson the city used the court system and fines on the poor who get arrested to fill their budget needs.
The trade agreements are also being used as a tool to foment military conflict with China.Finian Cunningham describes how trade is a carrot being used to get Vietnam to do its bidding against China. The US Asian Pivot depends on countries in Asia working with the US military in conducting joint war exercises, buying US military equipment and standing up to China in regional conflicts. The TPP is the economic arm encircling China and a tool to entice Asian countries to join the US – China conflict.
People in almost all the countries where the US is pushing corporate rigged trade are standing up. This week in New Zealand the US consulate warned Americans to stay away from TPP protests because they could “become confrontational.” The protests were large by New Zealand standards – 21 cities saw tens of thousands of protesters urging the government to “walk away from the TPPA.” These protests in Europe and Asia have made it hard to reach final agreement because politicians fear voters will throw them out of office and therefore it limits their ability to give in to corporate and US demands. …
