Canberra Attempting To Salvage TPP Minus US
According to this article on News.com, Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull is yet unwilling to give up on the TTP now that the US has withdrawn. Australia, along with Japan, New Zealand, and other signatories have reportedly reopened talks about restructuring the TTP, potentially to include China as an new primary signatory.

"“There is also the opportunity for the TPP to proceed without the United States. Certainly there is the potential for China to join the TPP.” - PM Turnbull.


As ever, the world continues to turn, regardless of events.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

Yup. The big winner out of that was Xi. And he didn't even have to do anything.

I wonder if he has pictures of hookers pissing on Trump's head, too?

TPP not TTP. We should get rid of the US's stupid backward thinking IP rights from the TPP so we are free to limit the term of copyright to ~30 years or so (not that that would happen under the current government anyway), and then the TPP would be a good trade deal.

RE: Canberra Attempting To Salvage TPP Minus US
I agree. There were no viable economic reasons for Australia (or the US) to enter into this pointless TPP. Do we really want huge multinational corporations again suing the Aussie government for (alleged) breaches of intellectual property rights—as per the "investor-state dispute settlement" clause?

For example: In June 2014, the American pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly filed a legal action against Canada at a North American Free Trade Agreement court. Eli Lilly argued that the Canadian court's invalidation of two of their patents—for Zyprexa and Strattera—due to insufficient evidence of the stated benefit of the drug, was in violation of the treaty’s expropriation (a State taking property from its owner for public use) rules.

Another example: The Australian government has already spent more than $50 million defending a case brought by Philip Morris against our cigarette and tobacco plain packaging legislation—enabled by an obscure, so-called investor-state dispute settlement clause written into a Hong Kong investment agreement.

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.

Good. It's about the only part of the Bernie platform that I wasn't happy with.

B-b-but! The whole friggin' point was to create a trade bloc as a gesture of solidarity against potential China expansionism. Thus making a military show of force less necessary.

Right! The TPP is not the problem.

The control over the global Leviathans e.g. ISDS, is the battleground.
