The TPP

It seems as though the TPP is now a signed agreement.

As it is a multi-lateral agreement there will be more benefits than the alleged benefits spruiked absurdly by the Government on the bi-lateral agreements.. Andrew Robb plainly did not know about the modelling commissioned by his own department.
On the other hand if the agreement is mainly about intellectual property as alleged by Kruggers then the benefits will be much lower.
Until we see the actual agreement we do not know. David Collins has some useful insights.
THIS is quite critical.
We can but hope it might jump start trade.
