  5. The Chinese Working Women's Network
    Against The Current vol. 113

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2004
    There is no doubt that China is growing rapidly in importance in the global economy. China has now surpassed the United States as the largest destination in the world for foreign investment. While many U.S. businesses (and other multinationals) look eagerly to both the large Chinese market and the very low wages of Chinese workers, the U.S. labor movement has been focused on stopping the flow of U.S. production and jobs to China.

  7. The Creation of World Poverty
    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 1981   Published: 1983
    Hayter challenges the assumption that the West is 'helping' the rest of the world to develop. Far from rescuing the countries of Asia, Africa and Latin America from their supposed backwardness, the rich countries have accumulated vast wealth at their expense.
  8. Earning a Profit from Global Warming
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2015
    As evidence mounts that a warming world is hurtling toward the point of no return, the plan of the world's governments is to make adjustments to the ability of corporations to profit from polluting. Short-term profits continue to be elevated above the long-term health of the environment.
  9. FTAA, The Hydra's New Head
    Against The Current vol. 90

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2001
    Capitalism in many ways is like the mythical hydra of Greek legend, a gigantic serpent with multiple heads, the center one being immortal; every time an attacker chopped off one of its outer heads, two others grew in its place. It was killed by Heracles, with the assistance of his charioteer Iolaus. As Heracles chopped off a head, Iolaus would burn its neck cavity to keep new heads from growing. Eventually they were able to reach the center head and sever it from the body.

    The Media and the TTIP

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2014
    I have come to the conclusion that the West is a vast lie machine for the secret agendas of vested interests. Consider, for example, the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership and the Transpacific Trade and Investment Partnership.
  14. NAFTA's Chapter 11 Makes Canada Most-Sued Country Under Free Trade Tribunals

Also: a discussion of James Hansen's fossil fuel exit strategy, and a critique of Alinsky-style organizing.
  20. Other Voices: The Connexions Newsletter - November 7, 2015
    Corporate rights treaties

    Resource Type: Serial Publication (Periodical)
    First Published: 2015
    Our focus is on the corporate rights treaties that are misleadingly sold as trade agreements. In particular, the spotlight is on the Trans-Pacific Partnership, negotiated in secret, and now scheduled to be rubber-stamped by national governments on a take-it-or-leave-it basis. The TPP is best understood as a major milestone in the long-term war waged by the corporate elite against any form of democracy.
  21. Other Voices: The Connexions Newsletter - January 30, 2016
    Conflict of interest

    Resource Type: Serial Publication (Periodical)
    First Published: 2016
    This issue of Other Voices shines a light on the murky world of conflict of interest, the hidden reality that often underlies appearances of neutrality, objectivity, and due process. Conflicts of interest are inherent in capitalism, a system founded on the premise that the state and society should be subordinated to economic self-interest and the accumulation of private wealth. Scientists who are supposed to be studying the effects of GMOs are funded by agribusiness corporations. Doctors who receive money from pharmaceutical companies write articles promoting the drugs produced by those companies. Decisions about pipelines are made by regulators who have spent years working in the oil industry, and who will be heading back to jobs in the industry after their stint ‘regulating’ it. Politicians receive campaign funds from corporate lobbyists.

    Against The Current vol. 125

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2006
    The Agreement on Textiles and Clothing expired in 2005, ending 30 years of a quota system under the Multi-Fibre Arrangement (MFA). Ending the Agreement signalled the World Trade Organization’s (WTO) promotion of free trade in this sector; but phasing in free trade here has proved to be far from frictionless.
  24. The Protectionist Trap
    Against The Current vol. 88

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2000
    In July, the United Nations and some fifty large corporations came to an agreement that the companies would all respect workers' rights and protect the environment in their investments around the world. Anyone who believes that this will actually happen is maybe in the market for a certain bridge as well.
  25. Release of the Full TPP Text After Five Years of Secrecy Confirms Threats to Users' Rights
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2015
    Trade offices involved in negotiating the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement have finally released all 30 chapters of the trade deal today, a month after announcing the conclusion of the deal in Atlanta. Some of the more dangerous threats to the public's rights to free expression, access to knowledge, and privacy online are contained in the copyright provisions in the Intellectual Property (IP) chapter. Now that the entire agreement is published, we can see how other chapters of the agreement contain further harmful rules that undermine our rights online and over our digital devices and content.

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2015
    The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) threatens all users' ability to access information and participate in culture and innovation online, but it's especially severe for those with disabilities or who otherwise depend on content in accessible formats.

  38. Transpacific Partnership and Monsanto
    Resource Type: Article

  39. TTIP: the Corporate Empowerment Act 
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2015
    The Transatlantic and Transpacific Trade and Investment Partnerships have nothing to do with free trade.
