That’s a shame, because if was really about free trade, it would be SO good for Americans.
if it’s anywhere near the deal we got with CHINA lookout!!....
It’s certainly not about free markets, that’s for sure. The EU is the biggest proponent and indeed champion of the social market economy, which regards the free market as the enemy.
You cannot Free Trade with a bloc like the EU. With all their subsidies, VAT rebates, and ingrained non-tarrif barriers, ain’t gonna happen.
Like you already alluded to in your post, this is again another “Free Trade Ruse” to backdoor One World Government (which is what modern free trade usually is).
..perhaps this is a move that, in time, will merge the eventual North American Union with the European Union into a mega superstate—kind of like a reconstitution of the Roman Empire in a general sense...
“Free Trade” with Red China, Mexico, and other Third world pits has been a disaster for the US and has decimated the American Middle-class. So I expect Democrats and Republicans alike to pursue this new “Free Trade” agreement with particular zeal.
Free trade? I don’t think that’s what they have in mind. More like central-planned, fascistic, top-down, crony capitalism of the worst kind. Neo-feudalism.
