Trade Secrets - The truth about the US trade deal and how we can stop it
  • Online delivery

Save event

Join Plymouth Green and Science Book Club, Climate Action Plymouth and Environment Plymouth for this presentation and discussion about the US trade deal.

Two quotes from the book by Nick Dearden:

  • “It (the Trade Deal) would not only undermine our food standards, but also many other regulations and protections we currently enjoy.”
  • “It would threaten our ability to reduce carbon emissions and meet our climate change targets.”

“To understand trade deals requires the will to fight your way through a dense thicket of negotiations, obscure regulations and arcane language. I have long placed my trust in Nick Dearden’s sound analyses and forensic examination of trade deals.” Ann Pettifor, award-winning economist and author of The Case for the Green New Deal.

“Virtually everything about Post-Brexit Britain will be defined by our trade deal with the United States. This is not about a few chlorinated chickens - everything we value will be restructured in the interests of multi national corporations. Brilliantly written and lucidly argued, this book is the most important thing you’ll read about the US trade deal, by Britain’s leading expert on the topic.” Jason Hickel, economic anthropologist and author of The Divide.
