In case you missed it, the Washington Post and Chicago Tribune have recently featured pieces on the myth of unfree trade, knocking at critics of two ambitious trade pacts the U.S. is currently pursuing. Unsurprisingly, the 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Agreement and the U.S.-EU Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) have recently become the object of anti-trade affections. However, when you cut through the hullabaloo and histrionics, you’re actually left with two well-positioned trade agreements destined to benefit U.S. jobs and the economy.
