But if you mention trade diversions as a point of criticism and then say model calculations are too vague, how can you be sure that developing and newly industrialising countries will be the losers in TTIP?
One can look at the effects previous free trade agreements have had. Mexico opened itself up to the United States and Canada through NAFTA and to the EU through a bilateral free trade agreement. Since then, Mexico has become more unstable, inequality has become more severe, the winners mostly include big corporations who were able to expand their market share.
Trends like this can often be observed under free trade agreements. And the liberalisation agenda of TTIP is likely to lead to similar results, including increasing inequality in third countries, a category to which developing countries belong.
So, let's influence The Post to write editorials to share their valuable wisdom on how "sometimes vulnerabilities are okay, guys. It's for your own protection."
You know, wishing the world were flat doesn't make it so. To quote Bruce Schneier:
"We have one infrastructure. We can't choose a world where the US gets to spy and the Chinese don't. We get to choose a world where everyone can spy, or a world where no one can spy. We can be secure from everyone, or vulnerable to anyone. And I'm tired of us choosing surveillance over security."
