Free trade with US tiny step closer

It might be only a tiny step with many giant steps needed before anything actually happens, but President Obama’s support for a Trans-Pacific Partnership is a welcome move towards a free trade agreement.

It follows last week’s the announcement of a New Zealand, China, Hong Kong, closer economic partnership (CEP).

It’s frustrating that so much time and energy goes into these country by country negotiations when it would be so much better to have a global agreement.

But bit by bit is better than nothing at all.

    Don’t worry about the water creeping up the deck folks (climate change and resource depletion), we’ve just swung a deal which will mean cheaper deckchairs.
