So, this is fairly old news considering. But wikileaks has a large amount of files these three since may. But before we get into, a brief overview. TTIP (Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership) is a treaty currently being signed by, primarily speaking, the EU and the USA. The TPP, or Trans-Pacific Partnership is a deal being signed between the USA and Australia and a bunch of other countries in the Pacific-Asia-Oceania region. The TISA (Trade In Service Agreement) is another treaty signed primarily by signatories of the two aforementioned treaties. For more information; here is a few links: Wikileaks: TTIP TPP TISA Wikipedia: TTIP TPP TISA Now. From my personal perusing of the the documents, they is a few things that seem a bit weird. Firstly, the fact that both the TTIP and the TPP are being negotiated in secrecy. Secondly the fact that these treaty affect mose of the world's GDP and also has some interesting claws in each of them (such as the intellectual property). Also, New Zealand, Australia and Japan are three countries which have held protests for the TPP. I do recommend reading those for yourself. But as a whole, I was wondering what people thoughts are about this and why it is being introduced and if it should be introduced as a whole. The reason why I am personally asking this is there seems to be a fairly large negative view on these treaties, and yet, I do not have a proper reason as to why they are implimenting them in the first place. Though a few theories come to mind: 1) the more 'conspiracy theorist' one of the two, government are being controlled by companies/corporations that are now using this power to further their own agenda. 2) this is an economic attempt to block out unfavorable countries to the USA like Russia. Effectively doing so by creative a 'bloc' against such countries. Personally a favor the latter, simply because it implies the government is not being controlled by companies, and I'd hate for those conspiracies to be right. But on the other hand, when you view at some of the articles and definitions within those which support this, it definitely makes you beg the question. So personally and from what I have read, I am against this, but what are thoughts? ETA: It also raises another question: Is there influence from the corporations and have far does it go?
