From the interview...


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.

Developing countries will be among the biggest losers if the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is implemented, warns Marion Lieser, explaining what a socially and ecologically fair EU-US trade deal could look like.

When diplomats want to justify stuff by citing "religious texts" as proof, then we're really in for the "doom's day".
 
And I can quote from her religious text that her opinion means shit being a woman, so what?

A year later, Smriti Irani is by far the most controversial cabinet minister, and with good reason.

"Sadly, we are still fighting those battles, whether here in the USA in Ferguson or Baltimore, or in Gaza or the Negev, wherever the oppressed need us to raise our voices unafraid.  We need to stand shoulder to shoulder with them, our brothers and sisters, until true equality and justice are won."
