"Trickle-down economics is a myth. Enriching corporations as the TPP would will not necessarily help those in the middle, let alone those at the bottom."

"Governments can enhance growth by increasing inclusiveness. A country's most valuable resource is its people. So it is essential to ensure that everyone can live up to their potential, which requires educational opportunities for all."
