Green Party on Free Trade

Party Platform


Trans-Pacific Partnership widens the wealth divide

Perhaps the most inconsistent was his call to shrink the wealth divide, which has gotten much more extreme during his presidency, while at the same time pushing rigged corporate trade agreements. This history of NAFTA and other trade agreements shows an expanding wealth divide, shrinking incomes for workers, more wealth for the already rich and a growing trade deficit. The Trans-Pacific Partnership and other trade agreements will make 90% of Americans poorer and expand the wealth divide.
