Why No One Really Wants The Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP)

The New York Times has reported that the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations will see a wrap late July. However, many of the 12 countries still have big issues that need to be solved before this agreement can move forward. Regardless of any issues these countries may have, America is ultimately going to be the biggest loser with this trade deal. We are the largest consumer nation in the world. Countries like Vietnam, Malaysia, and Japan need our economy to continue thriving. Whatever issues they may have, they will soon get over it since they need us more than we need them. Regardless, citizens in their countries are protesting against the TPP in the streets and their protests have helped slow down the TPP. People in Japan, Canada, Australia, the U.S., and New Zealand have been up in arms about the TPP.
