How Fast Tracking Global Trade Agreements takes the NY Say out of NYC
Global trade agreements that are “Fast Tracked” through Congress, like the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), harm us in ways we don’t know about until it is too late. Like NAFTA, the TPP will outsource jobs, hurt our environment, threaten food safety and access to medicines, limit internet freedom and roll back recent Wall St. regulations. The “investor-state” provision will also severely limit our rights as New Yorkers to pass laws and reforms as we see fit. If we do, we could be sued by large corporations for damaging their “future expected profits.”
