Corporate Europe Observatory: "Suing the state : hidden rules within the EU-US trade deal", CEOwebtv YouTube Channel (15 April 2014)


A short video from the Corporate Europe Observatory reminds us that a key element in the advancement of the New Corporate-Fascist World Order is the so-called "free-trade" agreement. Warning about the proposed EU/US Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership [TTIP], or Transatlantic Free Trade Area [TAFTA]), they comment:

"A giant free-trade agreement is currently being negotiated between the European Union and the US government. Hidden within this deal are plans to include rules to give investors the right to sue governments. Many fear their inclusion presents a grave threat to democracy, public funds, and the development of public policy. 

These rules, officially known as investor-state dispute settlement clauses, are found in many international trade and investment agreements, mostly signed since the 1990s. They give investors based in a country where the agreement was made the ability to sue another signatory state if its policies have resulted in reduced profits. Investors are increasingly using these clauses to sue governments for billions of dollars." *
