TPP 'worst trade deal ever,' says Nobel-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz

Trans-Pacific Partnership should be revised to advance interests of citizens, not corporations, he says

Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz says the Trans-Pacific Partnership may well be the worst trade agreement ever negotiated, and he recommends Canada insist on reworking it.

"I think what Canada should do is use its influence to begin a renegotiation of TPP to make it an agreement that advances the interests of Canadian citizens and not just the large corporations," he said in an interview with CBC's The Exchange on Thursday.
