Ralph Nader on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)

A fair few months old, but very good discussion of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) in the videos below. For excellent and concise analysis, see here. The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) means grotesque corporate tyranny for the relevant nations involved.

One of the many outrageous aspects of the TPP is that it would effectively ban any sensible and effective financial regulation in the countries concerned, and that under its State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) provisions corporations can sue governments and undermine democracy though private and secretive international tribunals. In other words: this is a savage attack on democratic and national sovereignty.
