Percolate: TTIP: The Biggest Trade Agreement You've Never Heard Of
July 23rd, 2013 at 6:00pm CDT
Negotiators from the U.S. and Europe are busy working on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, or TTIP. If passed, this would be the biggest trade agreement ever, with impacts far beyond what most people think of as "trade," and could seriously erode public goods and "the Commons" on both sides of the ocean.
Join IATP's international trade expert Steve Suppan for a discussion of this behemoth free trade pact, how it could affect you and your community, and why so much of the official debate on something so important is being held in secret.
Live stream will start at 6:00pm CST
