As a two-armed economist, I’ll say that the benefits of the TPP are uncertain. Chop off one of my arms and I’ll say that the net benefits are positive.

This is from my article “All things considered, TPP would’ve been a plus for US economy,” The Hill, January 30, 2017.

In writing this, I was helped by the clear reasoning of one of our Econlib Feature Article writers, Pierre Lemieux. He wrote this piece on the TPP last year.
