Warren on investor state dispute settlement

Aka ISDS. In this video she discusses how it is in all our trade agreements, including the upcoming TPP. Basically it allows corporations to sue countries if any of their laws interfere with their projected future profits. And it is adjudicated not by a court in the defendant country but by a tribunal of corporate lackeys with vested interests. And that’s free trade? WTF.
