Roundtable: Trans-Pacific Partnership

On Tuesday October 27th, members of GUCD came out to argue over the merit of the Trans-Pacific Partnership.  The event began with a discussion of free trade and the TPP in general before moving into the specifics of the deal.  There was lively debate over whether the TPP offered enough protection for low-income workers in the US, as well as general agreement over the IP protections and the hope to increase working standards across the Pacific.  We concluded by looking at the national security and geo-political consequences.  Thanks to everyone who attended and sorry that the pizza was a little bit late.
