Like any agreement, the Trans Pacific Partnership (if ratified by Congress) will create winners and losers. Weighing in at more than 2,700 pages, the 12-country pact isn’t as much about “free trade” as it is about how — and in whose in interest — decisions about our economy, labor standards and the environment will be made.
Join renowned economist and author Dean Baker for an evening of education and discussion, to learn more about the implications of the TPP for our jobs, our communities, and the nation at large.
Baker is an EOI board member, an American macroeconomist and co-founder of the Center for Economic and Policy Research, and a well-regarded author. He was previously a senior economist at the Economic Policy Institute and an assistant professor of economics at Bucknell University, and holds a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Michigan.
