"In the United States, the prospects for increased international trade look dim. The continuing fallout from revelations that the National Security Agency snooped through millions of pieces of European telephone data has cast a pall upon the Trans-Atlantic Trade and InvestmentPartnership (TTIP) talks. Additionally, the government shutdown forced the cancellation of the second round of negotiations on the pact, as well as forcing President Obama to miss the Asian Pacific Economic Cooperation summit, which squandered an opportunity to push for a similar commercial agreement in Asia. Internally past and future fiscal fights are likely to sour what little (if any) good feelings remain between President Obama and Congressional Republicans."
