Yves Smith and Dean Baker Discussion with Bill Moyers
Econintersect: There is an ongoing negotiation to establish a multi-national Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (which excludes China) that is represented to be a broad new free-trade pact. Yves Smith (Naked Capitalism) and Dean Baker (Center for Economic Policy and Research) discussed this little publicized activity last week with Bill Moyers. You will learn from this discussion that the agreement has little to do with free trade but is mostly about protecting the interests of large corporations in the opinion of Smith and Baker.
Both Yves Smith and Dean Baker have had work posted at Global Economic Intersection.
