Thank you for your comments, which insist on the mean that the TPP is not just a way to free business. The treaty negotiated with EU, just arrive when EU politician are very critisized. Population is on a way back to conservatism and populism. Such treaty does'nt appear to be a good solution and for sure, does'nt come at the right time.

TPP

BrianCaldwell7's curator insight, April 5, 8:02 AM

This is a very politically contentious partnership and would reshape economic geographies and even regions of the world.  From the 1500's to the 1980's, the Atlantic trade had the greatest volume of world trade, but the Pacific has surged past, and is showing no signs of being supplanted any time soon.  This Stratfor video is a quick introduction to the economics and politics of the TPP.

Wil je het geluid van YouTube video opnemen dan is Peggo een mooie manier om een mp3 bestand te maken. Kopieer  en plak de link in de zoekmachine en de video wordt opgezocht. Met een paar handige instellingen (verwijder stiltes, audio normaliseren) maakt Peggo in een handomdraai een prima mp3.

The interface seems a little buggy, but the possibilities are broad. Can't get an invitation email to load, some sticky windows become unresponsive. Hope for fixes, so we can try this for teaching team collaboration, if nothing else.
