9/28 Clyde Prestowitz: TPP & Our Incoherent China Policy

September 28, 2015

Clyde Prestowitz the President of the President of the Economic Strategy Institute, explains the faulty thinking behind the TPP. Why America’s China policy is incoherent and our TPP policy shows us why. Brining China into the WTO and why it didn’t cut the American trade deficit. Why our assumptions about trade deals are wrong. How China’s trade policy undermines American jobs and how American corporations are complicit. Why Jeff Immelt is a supplicant in China and a player in Washington DC. And the elite consensus on trade.

On The Fun Half: Why did Shell stop drilling in the Arctic. Fox News Pope and sadly the real Pope backs Kim Davis. Jake Tapper grills Ben Carson and Carson’s campaign advisor cuts the interview short. Peter King freaks out over John Boehner’s resignation. Iran’s President laughs at the GOP. Ted Cruz threatens to kill Iran’s Supreme Leader. The GMO debate continues and your calls and IMs.
