Non-financial news

Filed under: Odds 'n ends — totallygroovygirlfriday @ 1:00 am

groovygirl likes to link to news that is non-financial in nature, but might be worthy of your attention and might get buried in the weekly news dumps.

Here is one: Trans Pacific Partnership. groovygirl is concerned because no one is able to look at it. Secrecy makes gg very nervous. And it is regarding the internet and privacy issues, as far as anyone can tell.

GG is afraid this story might get buried between Obama’s temp amnesty for illegal immigrants under 30 and the soon to be announced Supreme Court decision on the health care bill.

Sounds like both Republicans and Democrats are up in arms over this one.

  1. My understanding has been that this is something that would have favoured American trade with Pacific partners, but more participants are asking in (e.g., Canada) and the effect is to de-polarize and reduce American dominance. The implications are not clear. In Canada, the media coverage of TPP is focused on deregulation of “supply management” aka dairy and poultry. Any bearing on net neutrality eludes me thus far, but the internet is seen by many as a teat available for sucking by desperate governments.
