It's just been signed in New Zealand by the 12 negotiating parties and now US President Barack Obama is pressuring Congress to get it passed quickly. Obama wants it passed so that the US will be able to "write the rules of the road in the 21st century," enabling it to shape global trade to its own advantage.
Obama is nothing but a puppet for Western banking interests that want to disguise and expand their growing global control via TPP. It will be a disaster that places multinational corporations on an equal footing with nation-states.
TPP is an authoritarian exercise that further solidifies various kinds of global "bigness" while squeezing out the average citizen.
A sister treaty is being developed for the "Atlantic." Taken together these two treaties support an ambitious and expanding technocracy that is intended – or destined – to manage the 21st century.
