Speaking of the Trans-Pacific "Partnership"

US President Barack Obama’s push to create the world’s largest free trade zone spanning the Pacific gained momentum on Sunday as Canada and Mexico followed Japan into accession talks.


“Today we have got a chance to make progress towards our ultimate goal which is a seamless regional economy,” Obama told the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum, which accounts for more than half the world’s GDP.

  Raw Story

Well, I think he means “global” economy. But I guess we have to do it region by region.

“I want to emphasize that the Asia-Pacific region is absolutely critical to America’s economic growth."

Don’t even have to couch it in euphemisms. This is for us.

And since NAFTA has worked out so well for Mexico, I can see why they would join in on this, too. Sheesh.

....but hey, do what you will anyway.
