Ttip: The world's biggest trade deal
Peter Day asks how the world's biggest trade deal, currently being negotiated between the US and the EU, may affect business, employment, the environment and democracy.
The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, or Ttip, is currently being negotiated between the US and the EU. It is the world's biggest trade deal and highly controversial. Peter Day asks how it may effect what we eat, how we work and the strength of our democracy. Will it provide a beneficial boost for business or allow big corporations to side-step important regulation?
