To hide the facts about failed trade policies, proponents are changing the data
How would the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) — a sweeping, controversial "free trade" agreement being negotiated behind closed doors — impact your state?
The TPP would expand the model of corporate-rigged trade deals that have contributed to massive U.S. trade deficits and job loss, downward pressure on wages, unprecedented levels of inequality, lagging exports, new floods of agricultural imports, and the disappearance of family farms. These impacts have been felt across all 50 U.S. states.
