Economists Peter A. Petri and Michael G. Plummer of the Peterson Institute for International Economics predict that the TPP would increase revenues in the United States by $131 billion a year, or 0.5 percent of GDP. The deal would increase U.S. exports by $357 billion a year, or 9.1 percent.  However, two economists at Tufts University argue that Pierre`s research is based on unrealistic assumptions such as full employment: lost jobs are immediately replaced in other industrial sectors.  According to Harvard economist Dani Rodrik, “Petri and Plummer believe that labor markets are flexible enough that job losses in negatively affected sectors of the economy are necessarily offset by job gains elsewhere. Unemployment is excluded from the outset â€“ an integrated result of the model that TPP supporters often introduce.  Rodrik finds that “the Petri Plummer model is directly rooted in decades of academic business modelling that makes a clear difference between microeconomic effects (organization of resource allocation between sectors) and macroeconomic effects (relative to the overall level of demand and employment). In this tradition, trade liberalization is a microeconomic “shock” that affects the composition of employment, but not its overall level.Â  New Zealand ratified the TPP on May 11, 2017.
 Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern will attempt to renegotiate vietnam`s Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement in due course so that the government can ban foreign speculators from buying existing New Zealand homes. She said: “We believe it will be possible to offset our wish, to ensure that we provide affordable housing, by easing demand and prohibiting foreign speculators from buying existing homes while meeting our business goals.”  This agreement will bring considerable benefits to New Zealand â€“ it will promote more jobs and higher incomes and provide a better standard of living for New Zealanders. Dartmouth Professor of Economics Emily J. Blanchard argues that while the TPP has been severely criticised by the political left, progressives should support the TPP: “The TPP`s promise of a new progressive regulatory framework â€“ an enforceable agreement against child labour and discrimination at work, measures to punish illegal exploitation and trade in protected species, and protection against consumer fraud â€“ would be an essential step in the progressive path of the litique on the world stage.Â  Already since 2012, New Zealanders have been aware that the TPP is much more than a “free trade agreement” and has far more consequences for New Zealand. . . .
