Should the United States join the Trans-Pacific Partnership?

Asked by: Kevin_Fishcer
  • It is time to expand trade and join the TPP

    The Trans Pacific Partnership would have been a beautiful trade deal that would not only have expanded American consumer spending, Economic and job growth, But would have also made the US a much more competitive country regarding trade with China. This could have been our way of sort of "sticking it to China", Which of course is the world's largest trading partner.

    While that alone has numerous benefits for not only the US economy, But also creating a more morally correct global economy, The TPP was expected to be a very positive thing for the American economy. This deal would have replaced NAFTA as America's largest trade agreement. Experts of trade state that by 2025, Exports would have been boosted to 305+ billion dollars, With US exports boosting by about 120 million dollars. It would benefit mainly steel and aluminum and other manufacturing jobs. The TPP agreement adds $223 billion a year to incomes of workers in all the countries, With $77 billion going to U. S. Workers.

    President Trump's anti free trade gut has potentially blocked us from making a very effective and beneficiary trade deal. Hopefully we will see candidates in 2020 that return to expanding trade and competing with China other than having a disastrous trade war

  • The US had better take part in TPP

    Should the United States join the Trans-Pacific Partnership?

    These days, a vast number of people take a view that the US ought to participate in the TPP. From my own perspective, I find myself in complete agreement with the aforementioned idea as free trade is the global trend, and reviving trade restrictions brings the US many demerits, especially when the US have been in the US-China trade war recently. In other words, when breaking down tariff barriers and non-tariff barriers such as quotas, levies, sanctions and so forth, the US will have many advantages. First of all, domestic consumers can purchase imported goods with lower prices and have versatile choices of commodities. Second, the economy will develop faster and the US manufacturers will be much more prosperous because of the increased export. In addition, the domestic producers will have benefits from economies of scale when they manufacture a larger number of products.

    Nevertheless, every coin has two sides, and benefits merely come to several industries in the US such as manufacturing industry, electronics industry and so forth, which are the strength of this nation. Other sectors of the US economy such as agriculture, garment and textile industry and so on will experience a great deal of difficulties. That the prices of agricultural products made by the US producers are much higher than those made by the counterparts in other countries such as Vietnam, Thailand and so on will make the US manufacturers in such sectors have more and more troubles with free trade. Hence, to help these sectors, the US government should have feasible measures such as offer financial support to the farmers, workers and producers and so on.

    By way of conclusion, those points presented above lead me to the fact that the US had better take part in TPP.

  • Already being screw over by China, so Ditch them already


    litterally everything people that talked trash about TPP is the same exact thing China being doing to for years. The only difference is with TPP we'll be a big Fish in a bigger pond. Beside half the time our good old trading parnter China want something bad to happnen to us,like hacking our power grid recently.

  • Deport McDonalds, Import Ice-Cream Trucks

    I believe that the United States is a country, free of ice-creams trucks. Furthermore, this issue shall be justified. Additionally, the United States shall not, and will not deduct the rights from the citizens. Concluding, Donald Trump will build a wall, paint it rainbow colors, and free all blacks from poverty, discrimination, diabetes, and Confederate Soldiers.
