The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is a proposed free trade agreement between Europe and the United States. Governments say it will allow for greater growth and prosperity while opponents say it will mean little regulation, lack of transparency, increased corporate greed and will move the balance of power from elected governments to private businesses.
It is felt that british institutions like the NHS could end up with large parts being run by companies outside of the UK.
