TPP Skeptics Should Switch Sides

| Nov. 12, 2015
Now that the TPP text has been released, I have read at least some parts of it in detail.  It seems to me that it does what the negotiators said it does.  There is a lot to like in the way it came out that many of the critics seem not to know about.   I hope that those Democrats who have been fervently opposed to the TPP  -- in particular some of the Massachusetts congressional delegation -- will now consider it with an open mind!

I have an op-ed appearing in the  Boston Globe this week, making the case.

I don't discuss the currency manipulation issue there, but have done so elsewhere.
