and the dominant changes to most Americans will be the globalization of a lot of jobs, which will be farmed out to the lowest qualified bidders internationally.

See the WTO Government Procurement Agreement here:


Note that there is an e-portal. Under TiSA many portions of the public sector must be privatized and eventually those jobs will go to whomever the lowest qualified bidder is. Also, there is procurement in TTIP between the US and EU. TPP also has some services.

the impact on the US could eventually be huge, making the entry level in a lot of professions pretty hard for young people without an advanced education to get into, unfortunately because they are not viewed as captive, low wage high skill workers. the lure of low costs and high profits is too high.

Republicans in congress now want to wait until after the election to vote on TPP since Trump, Cruz and their base hate it. IF Hillary wins the GE, congress might approve it during the lame duck session and Obama would sign it before she is even inaugurated. Hillary would breathe a sigh of relief that it was off her plate. If Trump wins the GE, you would think TPP would be dead. (Of course, that presumes that the Donald means anything that comes out of his mouth - a yuuuuuuge presumption.)
