    On today's episode of Loud & Clear, Brian Becker is joined for the full hour by lawyer and political activist Kevin Zeese and economics professor Steve Keen to discuss the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

    The Obama administration is making a last ditch effort to get the trade deal passed by the end of the year. With both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton opposed to the trade pact and the window of opportunity shrinking for Obama, can it actually pass? Or is the deal already doomed for failure like its companion piece, the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), appears to be? What would the failure of the TPP mean for the U.S. in the Asia Pacific and Obama's pivot?
