Just a Heads Up: The White House Released the Full Text of the Trans-Pacific Partnership

TPP Map

Cancel those weekend plans, tell’em you got some readin’ to do!

 

 

This morning the Obama administration finally unveiled the full Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement. The agreement is 30 chapters and hundreds of pages long, so yeah it’s going to take a while for people to get through.

 

We’ve talked about the TPP agreement in the past and to say that it’s kind of controversial is an understatement. The deal has divided political parties, countries, and in some cases marriages!

 

Street Car Named Desire

Fun Fact: Originally the famous Tennessee Williams play “A Streetcar Named Desire” revolved around the character’s feelings on the TPP deal and not about the human condition, or whatever the hell it was about…

 

You can read the accord for yourself here, but it’s pretty lengthy. As for us, we’ve been reading it and will have something (ie a 10-Point Expert) on it sometime next week. We’re shooting for Monday morning.
