Partnership for Impoverishment

Pretty good online comic about "Free-Trade" and the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Treaty.

"We don't want cheap goods per se, we want goods to be cheap relative to our incomes." That's what would actually make it possible to buy more things. Decades of stagnant incomes plus "free trade" agreements -- which are actually free-capital-from-regulations agreements that enable offshoring and union-busting -- do not add up to that.
