TPP Negotiations Incredibly Complex



If you think negotiating rents with five or six landlords each spring is complex, think what U.S. negotiators are up against this weekend  as they try to finalize the Trans Pacific Partnership trade agreement.

The agreement involves 12 Pacific Rim nations and an untold number domestic constituents, all demanding either new market access or protection from other countries. U.S, negotiators vow they'll hang tough.

 The New York Times provides an in-depth look at the complexities of the negotiations, and in reality, probably just skims the surface. Read the Times article here.
