  • The details of the Trans-Pacific Trade Partnership are coming out. The proposed 12-nation pact that affects 40 percent of world trade was a charged topic at LERA’s Annual Meeting in Pittsburgh. Jared Bernstein, former Obama administration economic adviser, in his Huffington Post blog evenhandedly provides context and historical perspective.
