US/EU Trade Talks

Business Daily today comes from Brussels where European and United States negotiators have spent the week working together on a project called the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership or TTIP. It's intended to boost economic growth by stimulating transatlantic commerce. Andrew Walker hears from business voices that love the idea, and from opponents who see it is a threat to workers, democracy and more. And Markus Beyrer, Director General of Business Europe and Dr Gabriel Siles-Brügge of the Politics Department at Manchester University discuss the contraversial issue of the investor-state dispute settlement that is part of the TTIP. Some say this would give corporations the power to strike down laws of sovereign nations.
