This researcher agrees with those who have suggested that there are many dire effects upon “workers’ rights, consumer protections and environmental standards” by way the TPP, CETA, et al,
however, I adamantly disagree
with the non economic comment that….
“We can rebut all these pro-TTIP arguments but time is running out” regarding the
pro treaty politicians who are under their influence of corporate lobbyists with the
promises of future considerations, et al, & their statement
“That jobs will be created, wages will rise, and living standards will improve”. DUMB comments like these will continue to “just” give away OUR “farm”.
From an economics point of view these comments ARE part of the BIG LIE (“Buyer/Voter Beware”). There is a truism* in economics that the voters do not seem to understand, &/or, just don’t care about & that is; unless the wages of the employed & unemployed, who may not be enjoying the same extra benefits as “our” corporate leaders, are pegged to the GROSS incomes (ie, before they write off “the cost of getting out of bed, etc.”) of the corporate leaders, the wage earners continues to fall behind.
It is this writer’s observation that, not only is this disparity between;
1) the SHAREHOLDERS & their corporate leaders
2) the wage earners (ie. the NON shareholders),
increasing, it has recently started to accelerate to the point where wage earners are feeling the collective “whip lash” & the encroachment of poverty,
the CETAgreement & the other treaties/ “arrangements” are grossly & delinberately exacerbating the aforementioned acceleration of the disparity with the corporate secret enterprises,
doing secret international financial transactions (The Wall Street Meltdown was just a small probe before the “invasion”) & being adjudicated “guilty 51% – 49%, or, VERY guilty 49% – 51%” against the NON shareholders ONLY (ie. The “Net Amount”) by the cyber (Death-Star Chamber) Tribunals for their cyber jurisdiction &
in their cyber “country”.
On the other hand, the reader, YOU, might consider doing your due diligence “research” & sending your IMPROVED versions of the following Notifications, Letters & Questions to YOUR relevant leaders, friends, family members,
1) EU Presidents; You’ve Been Served with “The NOTIFICATION of The PREEXISTING CHALLENGE toThe EU – Canada CETAgreement”
“Response to EU Presidents’ Acknowledgement of (the aforementioned) ‘NOTIFICATION’ “,
2) “The MERKEL (Chanc. Germ.) Letter; To Sue, or, Be Sued”,
3) “The Submission” to The SUPREME COURT of CANADA (or, YOUR Submission to YOUR Nations Highest Court):
“The SHAREHOLDERS ( & their corporate leaders) of CANADA, et al,
the harmless NON shareholders, both; Native & non Native Canadians, et al”,
4) “PUTIN; The WHITE KNIGHT?”
5) “YOU SHOULD HAVE KNOWN”; President George Bush reneging on the FTAgreement “with” Canada
6) “But, Will CHINA & INDIA Support ‘PUTIN (BRICS); The WHITE KNIGHT’ ”?
7) et al.
Finally, it IS worth while to repeat;
“What the TREATY of VERSAILLES was to the 20th century PALES in COMPARISON to the TPP, CETA, C-CIT, NAFTA, et al, in the 21st”.
And, if you do not know about the Treaty of Versailles, &/or, its significance in turning Europe, et al, into an economic basket case for the 20th century, ask your parents, &/or, your grandparents
By way of closing, I look forward to reading about your thoughts, your feelings, your improvements, etc. regarding the above.

* The Second Truism of Economics; Economics is like a waterbed in several different ways. For one, there is only so much value at any time. Value is not created, it’s taken from another economy. And, while one can push down in one spot/area of the “waterbed” & the rest of the waterbed comes up in a predictable & profitably manipulative manner. Perhaps the most interesting thing about the TPPartnership & the other recent treaties/”arrangements” is that the secrecy of the “arrangements” deliberately provides a terrific way to take money out of the legitimate “waterbed” (ie. economy) without anyone knowing that the floor might be wet & re introducing the cleaned money later as if a SHAREHOLDER, or, corporation, had won the “clean” money in Monte Carlo.
