What We Read Today 22 January 2014

Econintersect: Every day our editors collect the most interesting things they find from around the internet and present a summary "reading list" which will include very brief summaries of why each item has gotten our attention. Suggestions from readers for "reading list" items are gratefully reviewed, although sometimes space limits the number accepted.

Today we have a focus on the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP).

  • Gary Webb, RIP (Marc Cooper, LA Weekly News) Hat tip to Roger Erickson. A ten-year old story very much worth reading. It's about the corruption of self interest that can infect a media company, misinform the populace and destroy lives.

  • Aspen and the End of Snow (Nathaniel Rich, Men's Journal) Hat tip to Naked Capitalism. The disappearance of snow on the lower reaches of Aspen Mountain by 2100 will have far more important consequences than lost skiing.

The next five articles are about the TTP (Trans Pacific Partnership). See also GEI News: Wikileaks Releases Environmental Chapter of TPP

  • Everything you need to know about the Trans Pacific Partnership (Lydia Depillis, The Washington Post) This is a fairly straightforward description of what is known about the TPP. The map below shows the estimated trade volumes and the graph below that shows how the economic gains are likely to be distributed within the U.S.

"The provisions in the agreement will overrule measures passed by national, state, and local legislative bodies, in effect stripping democratically elected officials of much of their authority. Since most of the text is still secret we can only speculate on what the final agreement will include."
