The Trans-Pacific Partnership: Impact on the U.S. Economy
The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a trade agreement negotiated among 12 countries, including the United States, has sparked a heated debate about the benefits of trade agreements to the U.S. economy. Many proponents and critics have spoken about the potential economic impact of the TPP on the U.S. economy. Key areas in the agreement include: intellectual property rights, telecommunications, state-owned enterprises, investment, labor and environmental standards. Attention has also been focused on the negotiating process-specifically, the role of Congress in setting negotiating objectives and interacting with the executive branch in ensuring the implementation of those objectives.
