If TPP fails to be ratified, in the lame duck or under the next President, the consequences for the politics of trade in the US, and globally, would be enormous


Key points included in this report are,

- We were cautioned by some pro-TPP players “never say never,” so let’s put odds of TPP ratification in lame duck at 10-15%
- Many normally pro-trade members of Congress on both sides of the aisle are deserting the TPP, either opposing it outright or saying they are “studying” it
