An analysis by the Japanese Cabinet Office released in December 2017 showed that the original TPP deal would have pushed up long term real growth in gross domestic product by 2.59 percent, a significantly higher rate than the 1.49 percent expected under the TPP deal without the US - which is now known as the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership, or TPP-11. Thanks for coming in. "China is looking to line up other countries against the U.S., Chinese officials said -especially in Europe, whose companies could benefit should China react to the stepped up pressure by retaliating against the U.S.", The Journal writes. Eleven other nations in the Asia Pacific, including key US allies, completed the deal last month. Kudlow has always been an advocate of free-trade measures. "What he tells people in a room to make them happy does not always translate into administration policy", said senior fellow at the Chicago Council of Global Affair Phil Levy.

Trump's renewed interest in the pact depends on whether the United States could strike a better deal than President Barack Obama did, Trump said in a Thursday night tweet.

"It's hard to bring part of the pact and renegotiate it", he said, calling it a "well-balanced pact" that carefully addressed the needs of the current 11 member nations.

The best thing the United States can do to push back against Chinese cheating now is to lead the other eleven Pacific nations that believe in free trade and the rule of law.
Almost two-thirds of USA soybean exports go to China. Many American agriculturalists maintain that the easiest way to help them is to avoid a trade war with China in the first place. It's a fundamental mistake for the U.S.to be out of it, particularly as we focus on the impact on China. It is estimated that increased market prospects for US farmers and ranchers would have added more than 40,100 jobs to the USA economy. Thank you so much, sir.
