Farmers Push Trans-Pacific Partnership

This week we take a look at an article that highlights corn producers efforts to push the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) through congress. It shares where things stand with the TPP, why there is the push, and what challenges lie ahead. Read the linked article and then utilize the discussion questions to guide your conversations.

Corn Farmers Push Congress to Pass TPP

Discussion Points

  • Why is the TPP a positive thing for American farmers?
  • Why are farmers so concerned with getting the passage of the TPP now rather than later?
  • What could the passage of the TPP mean to the rest of the world?
  • Do some additional research. Where do the current presidential candidates stand in regards to the TPP?
