TPP, or Trans Pacific Partnership,
is an example of what can go wrong when no attempt is made to democratize decision making in global governance. On-going rounds of trade negotiations are taking place under a self-imposed gag pact even though 600 corporate leaders (with the help of their lobbyists?) are involved. So it seems that citizens around the world have been locked out of affecting the "rules of the road" for the near future of globalization but only "corporate citizens" have an inside track.

​​The silver lining in this on-going controversy is that many people may come to realize that global governance continues to take shape (UN, WTO, IMF, TPP, etc.) but people will be poorly served unless they work for citizen representation in these institutions.
