Abstract

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), perhaps the world's most ambitious free trade agreement, is currently under negotiation. What began as a small regional free trade agreement has become one of the primary tools in the United States' geopolitical pivot towards the Asia-Pacific region. The agreement--negotiated in secrecy--will dramatically expand the rights of corporations over those of food producers, consumers, workers and the environment.
