Since mid-2013, the United States and the European Union have been negotiating a so-called free trade agreement, by now labeled â€œTransatlantic trade and investment partnershipâ€ or TTIP in short. The authors suggest that TTIP is a bad deal for three reasons. First, the projected economic gains amount to not more than a rounding error. Second, none of these studies account for social, environmental or economic adjustment costs. Third, available documents suggest that TTIP is intended to be a â€œliving agreement,â€ which could permanently bias the legislative process in favor of multinational corporations.
