Your eyes may glaze over at the topic, but it’s important to learn about what the deal means and may mean in the future, for consumers, producers, retailers and politicians. I heard a good explanation about it on the news this morning (in Japanese). Here are some links to English language explainers:
“TPP: What is it and why does it matter?” (from BBC)
“The Trans-Pacific Partnership explained” (from the Australian Financial Review — this one has some useful infographics, too)
“Sweeping trade deal sets wide-ranging rules” (from Nikkei Asian Review)
“The TPP, explained in 75 seconds” by the Washington Post (video will open in a new tab):
This one is a little older and definitely includes an opinion:
If you’re looking for more details, try going to Google News (or Yahoo News or…) and typing “TPP explained” and then browse the headlines. Make sure you pay attention to the source: Is it reliable? Does it have a bias?
