If it is ratified, the TPP will be the largest trade agreement in history, encompassing at least 40 percent of the world’s gross domestic product and one-third of all global trade. Japan and the more minor imperialist countries Canada and Australia have been cut in on the deal -- and competing European powers cut out -- but it is the U.S. rulers who hold the whip hand. Under the banner of "free trade," the TPP aims to drive up the exploitation of labour across the board while increasing imperialist domination of dependent countries. Above all, this agreement targets China, escalating the U.S. bourgeoisie's drive to promote capitalist counterrevolution there through economic pressure and military encirclement.
