Now that the Trans-Pacific Partnership is finalized, the real fight starts

The time has finally come; the TPP has been finalized!  This was an extremely successful moment for the Obama administration as his term is coming to a close.  The next question that lies is, “what now?”  It appears the war has only just begun (http://boingboing.net/2015/10/05/now-that-the-trans-pacific-par.html).  The public will soon finally get a chance to see what negotiators and executives from major corporations were plotting in secrecy for the past decade.  Similar to the author of the article, I have a superstition things will go awry once the public finally reads the text.  I can already envision thousands of angry Americans petitioning to do away with the TPP.  In addition to the people in the U.S., I can’t begin to fathom the outrage from citizens in remaining 11 countries.  I can only hope the past years of negotiation will have paid off and all social classes will benefit from this monumental trade agreement.
