Tom Friedman Makes His Case For TPP
Tom Friedman devotes the bulk of this article to chaos in the Mideast. He then positions the TPP as a step in the direction reducing chaos. If the US is not successful in establishing trade agreements that reduce global chaos, Russian and China will respond to our leadership gap. Apparently, that would only create more chaos. He offers no defense of TPP itself; its all about chaos reduction. Friedman contributed to chaos in the Mideast by supporting the US invasion of Iraq. His credentials on chaos reduction are not very strong.
