Quote of the day

“It is actually ‘Economics 101’ – and has been in writing for well over two centuries – that the CEOs’ lobbyists have never, and will never, secretly draft a ‘free trade’ agreement. It is Economics 101 that they have always and will always secretly draft language that aids their corporate CEO clients at the expense of the public – that TPP must be another in a long, dismal line of Faux Trade agreements. That’s what theory, all human experience, and the leaked portions of the TPP draft all show. That doesn’t have ‘near unanimity’ among economists, it has actual unanimity.” – William Black (via comment here)
